This series centers on relationships, on hope. and on life in the Spirit. Following are some suggestions for music for your worship service. These songs can be sung/led by a soloist online, or with a praise band, or simply played as an instrumental offering. Whichever way you may need to share the music for your congregation, we encourage you to think about the many ways that you can share in the music without singing in a confined room. There are many ways to embody a song without actually singing, and you are encouraged to be creative and, above all, err on the side of safety. For more ideas on how to share in the music without singing visit UMCDiscipleship.org or thehymnsociety.org/covid-19.
