Scripture reminds us to to use Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs in the worship of God. You can find all three at Christ Church Riverton. Traditional Anglican hymns are always a part of our worship but we then add more recently added hymnody as well. With gifted musicians in our parish or guest musicians, the music not only honors God but comforts and encourages those in the pews. Congregational singing is accompanied by a fine pipe organ and at times additional instruments. There is always opportunity to share your musical gifts as a vocalist or instrumentalist in solo or ensemble settings at Christ Church.
“Lift Every Voice and Sing”
“Lift Every Voice and Sing” (LEVAS) is the second most popular hymnbook the Episcopal Church offers. LEVAS is an excellent collection of not only Spirituals, Gospel Hymns, but also some more recently written selections. We hope you will be drawn closer to god as we sing hymns such as “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms,” or the Swedish hymn “children of the Heavenly Father,” or the newer hymn, “There’s a Sweet, Sweet Spirit in this Place and I Know that it’s the Spirit of the Lord.”
