Worship Ministry

At The Village Chapel we desire that our Sunday morning musical worship be God-directed, Christ-centered and congregationally accessible. We want to be a church that sings well! The Apostle Paul directs us to do the same, “…teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” (Colossians 3:16). Musical worship is formative and helps to shape our understanding of the Gospel. We have the privilege of singing to one another, reminding each other of the matchless worth of Jesus.

Stowe Missal

Father, all powerful and ever-living God,

We do well always and everywhere to give you thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord.

You, O Father, with your only begotten Son and with the Holy Spirit are God.

You are God, one and immortal;

You are God, incorruptible and unmoving;

You are God, invisible and faithful;

You are God, wonderful and worthy of praise;

You are God, strong and worthy of honor;

You are God, most high and magnificent;

You are God, living and true;

We believe you, we bless you, we adore you.

We praise you through Christ who is the salvation of our souls; through Christ who is the resurrection of the dead.

Through Christ the angels praise your majesty; he powers of the heavens tremble.

So grant, we pray you, that our voices may be admitted to the heavenly chorus, in humble declaration of your glory!

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
