God gave us music that we might pray without words.
We couldn’t agree more, and we understand that for most people music makes worship more meaningful. That’s why the primary goal of our music ministry is to enrich Sunday worship—and the spiritual growth of church members—through song and instrumental music. Accompanied by our organist Ron Nice, the Sanctuary Choir leads the hymn singing, presenting anthems and songs that enhance worship at our services. The entire congregation also shares this role on Sunday mornings, as we raise our voices high in hymns of praise, thanksgiving and supplication.
Many members participate more deeply by being part of one or more of our music groups, or by playing instruments to supplement the choral selections. Opportunities exist for people of every age to share their talents and love of music. New choir voices and handbell ringers are always welcome, and no experience is necessary.
No experience is necessary to sing in the choir. The choir is open to high school students and older. The Sanctuary Choir helps to lead worship by singing a wide variety of worship music including hymns and anthems. The choir generally has choir practice on Thursday evenings.
The children’s choir sings for worship several times a year. This is a wonderful opportunity for our young people to offer their praises to God!
