Hymns written in praise of Gods, in praise of leading figures and heroes have been around since ancient Greek times.

Decide how your chosen music will be played. Select church music for your choir if you have one. Select hymns or music for a church organ, piano or keyboard.

Make sure any music can be heard clearly in all areas of the church used by the congregation, especially if you expect them to sing. #*Consider acoustics

# Research church music. Visit a library or search on line for music typically played at church services at certain times or year. Consider a mix of popular hymns and music and songs etc the congregation may enjoy hearing for the first time. Traditionalists will expect certain music at certain times of the year especially around Easter and Christmas, but you can look for different arrangements of traditional music if you wish.
#  Attend another church, or even better yet ask their music director about their ideas for what music to play and what people respond to best for is happening in church service.

# Consider the demographic of people that attend the services at your church. Find the appropriate church music for all ages of your congregation, accommodate the majority, but incoporate the minority some times. You may have a lot of young families that attend your church, some of them might like to hear church music their grandparents listened to once in a while just as older people might like to hear contemporary church music occasionally.

*Get more than just yourself to help out.

*Let people know if you're trying things out with your church music selections. If a music choice is not well received, you need never use that music again. If people know what's usual for your church music in your church and when you're trying something out, they won't be put off coming to another service.

*Make sure it is Christian music such as Chris Tomlin or Hillsong Church music for Pentecostal services.
