Rhythm and Word: Midweek Music and Prayer
“Rhythm and Word: Midweek Music and Prayer” is a new online opportunity for perceiving God and the sacred through spoken word and vernacular forms of music offered by the Jazz at Four Quartet.
This weekly offering on YouTube weaves together scripture, prayer, and American vernacular music, specifically jazz and its related genres blues, soul, and Gospel.
Joe Morrow and other Fourth Church pastors as well as the Jazz at Four Quartet are putting together these online midweek worship experiences—about 15 minutes in length and made available on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m.—which bring together the sacred and everyday life.

Weekly Jazz at Four Email: Subscribe
On Sundays at 4:00 p.m. Fourth Church offers a service that incorporates jazz music. Communion is celebrated at this service every week.
Music is the lifeblood of our Jazz at Four worship together. Each week, we worship with a poetic pattern of word and song. Jazz, along with its musical cousins Soul and Blues, is the primary art form through which we praise God in our worship at the 4:00 p.m. service.
The heart of worship for our community is the Communion Table. Each week, we feast at Christ’s table and find our hearts fed for the week ahead. In sharing the bread and cup together, many of us find meaning and a deeper sense of belonging.
Our Jazz at Four worship service has long been a laboratory for how Christians gather to worship God in the twenty-first century. This creativity and flexibility has shed new light on ancient traditions and kept us open to God’s reforming spirit. We also believe that God is calling us to continue to explore more ways to build community and deepen our relationships with one another and with God.
After worship, all are invited to join us for a time of sharing coffee, fellowship, conversation, and information about church programs and volunteer opportunities.
A “Jazz at Four” email with information about each Sunday’s 4:00 jazz service is sent weekly. Subscribe to receive this email at www.bit.ly/fpcjazz.
