UCC’s Music Ministry will commemorate our congregation’s Sesquicentennial with three special musical offerings in October!

First, we will help kick off the celebration on Sunday, October 1, at 7:00pm with a free concert in Van Cliburn Hall on the TCU campus. Celebrating our relationship with Texas Christian University, the Chancel Choir will perform several exciting choral-orchestral masterworks with professional and student musicians. The concert will culminate with the world premiere of “Choral Symphony #1” by our own, Jim Hodges. The biblical libretto was written in consultation with Eugene Boring, I. Wylie Briscoe, Professor of New Testament Emeritus at Brite Divinity School TCU, and longtime UCC member. Jim’s trademark compositional style will illuminate the inspired text with reverent awe and infectious exuberance!

Second, the UCC Chancel Choir will participate in a Hymn Festival at First United Methodist Church on Sunday, October 8, at 3:00pm. The choirs from UCC, First United Methodist Church, First Presbyterian Church, and St. Stephen Presbyterian Church will combine forces to sing several festival anthems and grand hymns accompanied by our four organists and the DFW Brass. Admission is free.

Finally, we will pull out all the stops for the music at our single combined worship service on Sunday, October 15, at 10:30am. Our choir, organ and instrumentalists will lead the congregation in an incredible morning of worship! We will lift our voices together to praise God and celebrate this milestone as a family of faith!
