The growing trend in churches is to abandon using hymnals and replace the experience with projected words on a digital screen. Connecting young and old through sharing a hymn book, learning to read music, and being an engaged part of a church family are just a few ways hymn books bridge the gap. Hymn books take the focus off of the worship leaders and potentially distracting graphics and place it on the shared participation of the congregation as one unified voice.


Here's a look at why we should bring back the hymnals!



1. Using Hymnals Is A Great Teaching Tool

Hymnals take the questions out of music. Using a hymnbook gives the musicians, leaders and followers shared knowledge of what the music should supposed to sound like.




3. Using Hymnals Gives Musical Information With The Text

When the words are on a screen, there is no further musical information given. Singers and Congregants alike have to memorize the song entirely which can be difficult for some.
