Joyful Noise!

The spring meeting of the MACCC is scheduled for Saturday, March 16, 2019!  This gathering will be hosted by our loving and hospitable friends at The First Congregational Church Hanson, 639 High St, Hanson, MA 02341.


Make A Joyful Noise!”….  that’s our theme for this meeting!  Music has always been an essential part of our worship services, and yet can be viewed in very different ways depending on who you are.  In our churches today we are not often simply chanting Psalms in praise of our Lord, but rather we have all manner of musical accompaniment with many different options for hymnals and styles of music.  For some, music plays a very prominent role in the worship service – for others, not so much. 


Perhaps you have many unspoken questions regarding the implementation of music in worship.  At this meeting we will address  some of the concerns as well as the blessings of music in our 21st century churches.


Presentation topics for the day will include:

  “How Can We Keep From Singing?” – Rev. Dr. Peter Smith

   Various Hymnals / Licensure Compliance – Rev. Allan Palmer

  “When in Our Worship God is Glorified” – Rev. Dr. John Tamilio III

We will also have a fun and interesting time of singing and learning the history of some of our cherished hymns – presented by David Crispin.


I know that this day will prove to be of great value to all.  So bring your choirs, music directors, music committees, and everyone else in your church… and join us for worship, growth, food, fun, and fellowship!



Pastor Scott D. Killian, Moderator
