Don’t you just love it when your favorite hymn is played at church? The words fill you with special feelings that take you into the presence of our Lord – don’t they?

In this fun, one-week online course, you’ll learn how to write your own hymns – and you don’t even have to be musically gifted! We’ll take a brief look at the history of hymns including the works of Charles Wesley, and then dive into learning a methodology that will allow you to easily create hymns of your own. We will find out what makes a hymn a hymn, the different categories of hymns, how they are metrically structured, and how we can write our own hymns.

This is a relaxed course that’s designed to be an act of worship as you follow your heart to express your love for God through creative expression. And remember - it doesn’t matter if you have musical talent or not – we are all in this class to please our audience of One by learning to express our adoration of Him through song. You may not be musically talented, but you can always make a joyful noise unto the Lord! Price: $30.00 This course is eligible for 0.5 CEUs.

***This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at Noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.***
