Music at First Presbyterian Church of Manhattan, KS

Many here at First Presbyterian and in our community have been blessed with extraordinary musical talents and abilities. Those members and friends seek to use those musical talents to give glory to God, and to bless others with the gift of a “joyful noise” in the form of beautiful music.

For more information on how you can get involved with the Music Ministry here at First Presbyterian, please contact Dr. Reginald Pittman at 785-341-1405 or e-mail

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
Serve the Lord with gladness;
come before his presence with singing.
Know that the Lord is God;
it is he that made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise;
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.

Psalm 100
