Soli Deo Gloria Concert Series

Soli Deo Gloria”  Music is a new FPC music ministry outreach funded by the Joy Smith Endowment. It enables FPC to more intentionally share our beautiful pipe organ and grand piano with our community and congregation. “Soli Deo Gloria” (“Glory to God Alone”) is one of the five solae of the Protestant Reformation. It essentially means that everything we do is to glorify God, not ourselves. In writing “S.D.G.” on many of his manuscripts, sacred and secular alike, Johann Sebastian Bach gave testimony to his faith and dedicated his musical creations to God.
