FPC Canon: An Invitation to Worship

Did you know that we have a list of songs that are especially significant in the worship of FPC? It’s called the FPC Canon. In recent weeks, some of the songs in this collection we’ve sung include “Amazing Grace,” “Days of Elijah,” “O Come to the Altar,” and “Untitled Hymn.” We encourage you to get to know all the songs in the FPC Canon and use them in your own private times of worship and reflection. You can listen to all the songs in the FPC Canon by using the YouTube playlist below. Enjoy!
 



Good Friday: The Last Words

On Good Friday, mark Christ’s death on the cross through singing, the sacrament of Communion, and The Last Words, an original choral and dramatic work by Dr. Daniel Perrin presented by the First Presbyterian Chancel Choir, instrumental ensemble, pipe organ, and actor Kevin Pitman, along with special artwork curated by FPC member Josiah Wombacher. The Last Words tells the story of Jesus’ final words from the cross. Each year, the centurion who carried out the death sentence of Christ returns to the place where it occurred to pay homage to the man he put to death.  The presentation will be followed by Communion accompanied by the FPC worship band. Be sure to invite your friends and family to this special hour-long experience, which will take place in the soaring cathedral-like sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church (20 Tacoma Ave. S.) at 7:00 pm on April 19.
