The Calvin Institute of Christian Worship is providing support to worshiping communities across North America to host Hymnfests. The purpose of this program is to promote learning about what it means to sing the whole of God’s story.
Who can participate?
Any worshiping community in North America is invited to apply for support through an application form. See below for our current list of participants.
Why is this happening?
To promote singing the whole story of God and God’s people through vibrant congregational song and participation of all ages.
The 900+ songs in the new hymnal Lift Up Your Hearts will help you select songs from several styles and several periods of church history, including songs from contemporary songwriters from a variety of cultures and contexts around the world.
