Each one of us has our own unique taste of what we enjoy, some like Country music, others prefer Rock or Rap music.  But let us not forget Classical music, Jazz, Blues, Hip Hop or Christian music.  At the 2020 IDE Middle School Retreat, our youth will study God’s gift of music with Pastor Ferch.  Together, we will look back to the Old Testament and learn how music was involved in the life of the church.  We will peer back into history to see how the early church used music in the Divine Service and how that applies to the church today.  We’ll also answer an equally important question of, “How does Satan influence our youth with music?”  Pastor Ferch will have samples of popular songs that today’s teens listen to and together as we parse the words of the song.  Through the work of the Holy Spirit, our youth will recognize the influence of Satan through all genres of music.
