FPC Canon: Crown Him with Many Crowns

This Sunday at FPC we will be singing “Crown Him with Many Crowns,” one of the songs in the FPC Canon. This hymn draws from Revelation 19:12, and its verses were written by two different individuals, one Catholic and the other Protestant. We only sing some of the verses, but you can read all of the verses here. “Crown Him with Many Crowns” is a wonderful song to sing when you are feeling down because of the brokenness and evil in our world. It points us to the truth that Christ is ultimately Savior and King. Enjoy some of the many performances of this inspiring hymn in the playlist below.

FPC Canon: Amazing Grace

Last Sunday, we celebrated the sacrament of Holy Communion, and at the end of the service we sang “Amazing Grace,” holding hands.  This has become a tradition at FPC. “Amazing Grace” is one of the songs in the FPC Canon, hymns and praise songs that form a special part of our worship as a  community. Find out more about the amazing history of “Amazing Grace,” and watch the playlist below of some of the many ways this song has been performed by a variety of musicians. The playlist includes performances by flash mobs, by a capella groups, by choir and orchestra, and an incredible performance that switches between a concert hall and outdoors in Washington, DC.
