We thank members of the music department faculty for sharing their music. Lindsay Armstrong sings a favorite hymn, “This Is My Father’s World” (SDA Hymnal No.92). Lyn Ritz, Benjamin Gish, and Jinhyang Park, present the same hymn in a trio arrangement by the Korean composer Byung-Jin Kim.

As you prepare your heart and mind to worship I invite you to take special comfort in the message of this hymn, especially the last stanza, given here:

This is my Father’s world,
O let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the Ruler yet.

This is my Father’s world;
Why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!
God reigns; let the earth be glad.

-Kraig Scott




Thank you for your generosity to the local ministry of the University Church, as well as to the global mission of the Adventist Church. Today, the loose offering goes toward the University Church budget. The following is a small sample of how this is allocated:
