Meet Kathy Marks and her contribution to our virtual ministry.

Christian faith, spirituality, and ministry have been intricately linked with music since Jesus walked this earth two thousand years ago. From chanting the Torah in Hebrew to Christian monks and nuns dedicating their lives to prayer through music — from the illumination of the first hymns in the early Middle Ages to Bach playing the organ in early 18th-century Germany — from the American spirituals on the Underground Railroad to the rise of Praise Music in 20th-century America — music has flowed from and through believers over the centuries.

Our faith would not be as sweet, as poignant, as rousing without our music… and here at Florence Congregational Church our organist and choral director, Kathy Marks, and minister, Reverend Averill Elizabeth Blackburn, are committed to keeping our music traditions alive in our youtube ministry.

Hymnals and Bibles at Florence Congregational Church (FCC).

All hymns, praise music, and spirituals are performed by Kathy Marks on either organ or piano for our youtube sermons here at Florence Congregational Church.

All credits are included at the end of each youtube sermon and mp3s (unedited) are now available on each individual sermon post as well as here on our mp3 page.

This mp3 masterpost is updated every Saturday afternoon if a new sermon is published that weekend.
