For Those Who Serve composed by Joseph M. Martin. For Choral (SATB). Shawnee Press. Choral, General Use, All Saints Day, Dedication/Committment, Labor Day and Sacred. 12 pages. Shawnee Press #A7483. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35007127).
Commissioned by the Shiloh Bible Church in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania to honor Pastor Larry Hummel and his wife for more than 33 years of service, Joseph Martin has written a loving and sensitive text of gratitude for those who have guided our faith journeys over the years. This moving choral is an appropriate choice for services of appreciation for so many people whose ministries and examples have profoundly affected our lives – teachers, ministers, church staff, musicians, childcare workers ... the list goes on. For Those Who Serve is a beautifully poetic description of those who model Christ's example and a wonderful opportunity to glorify God for those dedicated people in your faith community.
