Come Celebrate With A Singing People!
Pennington UMC’s 250 Year Anniversary, Part II

All are invited to the Pennington United Methodist Church Hymn Sing & Organ Recital, the second program in its 250th Anniversary Celebration series, on Sunday, April 21st at 3 p.m.

From the beginning of Methodism in the mid-1700s, Methodists have been known as “a singing people.” Indeed, in 1761, John Wesley, the originator of the Methodist movement, wrote practical advice to his adherents and concluded with a reminder of the purpose of singing: “Sing all. Sing lustily and with good courage. Beware of singing as if you were half dead or half asleep! Do not bawl so as to be heard above the rest of the congregation but strive to unite your voices together.”

Joined by organists from the esteemed American Guild of Organists (AGO), Central New Jersey Chapter, Pennington UMC will recognize its spiritual heritage of 250 years of praise and service through music. The organists will also play organ settings of hymns and other works related to the Methodist hymnal. The Church invites you to the concert and hymn sing with a reception afterward to meet the musicians as well as enjoy food and fellowship. A “free will offering” for the Church’s mission programs will be taken at the door. All are welcome!

Pennington UMC is located at 60 South Main Street, Pennington, NJ 08534. For more information, please visit the Church’s website at www.pumcnj.com or email the Church office at pumcnj@gmail.com.
