Singing the Psalms

Singing the Psalms?

We seek to worship God as He commands and sing from His praise book – the Psalms of the Bible. Our Presbytery has adopted The Book of Psalms for Worship (published by Crown and Covenant Publications) as the standard Psalm book of our congregations.

While not a bookseller, we do have a small inventory of The Book of Psalms for Worship. Contact us if you would like to purchase one.

A short video explaining Psalm singing and why we love to do so in our worship services.
