Christians call Sunday the first day of the week, the Lord’s Day. We begin our week by worshipping God on the Lord’s Day. It is one of the important ways in which we seek to put God first in our lives. Worshipping together on the Lord’s Day also reminds us that the Church is a community of people and not an organization that dispenses religious goods and services.
Music is an important part of First Reformed Church. During worship we sing a variety of hymns and responses from the many eras of Christian faith. Our sanctuary supports our singing with excellent acoustics with our Carl Anderson Memorial organ, a 3-manual, 26 rank pipe organ built by the Carey Organ Company of Troy in 1988. Six separate ensembles rehearse regularly to prepare for leading worship. For many, music is a doorway into a deeper life of faith. You are invited to speak to our Director of Music Ministry Rebecca Shepherd, to our Organist Justan Foster, to our pastor or to any of our ensemble leaders to learn more.
