Summer in the Psalms

The “Summer in the Psalms” is a six-week festival exploring the psalms as “The Soundtrack of Life.” The Psalter is the ancient hymnal of Israel; it also was the prayer book of Jesus. Dr. Geoffrey Lentz, Senior Pastor of FUMC, will talk each Sunday about how the Psalms can be a great resource to deepen your spirituality. Each week we’ll focus on a different type of psalm. And because the Psalter is a musical book, each week we will integrate music from many different genres to fit the day’s them including gospel, folk, classical, country, and jazz music.
