Joyful Noise – Christian Music Study – October

Joyful Noise - Christian Music Study @ Walton United
8:00 pm

October 20, 2015

A book study with a difference…. there are no books!

Starting Tuesday, September 29th, at 8pm in the Sanctuary, Joyful Noise is a monthly study exploring the vast range of Christian music across the ages. There’s no reading or required preparation. Although the playlist is available, if you want to listen in advance. Just come along and let the music connect to your heart, soul and faith.

October’s theme is “Hymns”

Below you’ll find links to the traditional music, the words for each hymn, and some alternative versions. Please listen to as much or as little as you would like!
