Worship & Music Ministry
What is Worship?
Worship is a dialogue between God and His people. Our goals are to create an atmosphere of worship that embraces both believers and non-believers, to create exemplary worship that allows complete and free-flowing communion between worshipers and God, and to utilize and grow the gifts and talents of the Spirit among worshipers.
*For our musical worship, we invite musicians of all experience and skill levels to join us. To find out how to join a group, please contact the musical director for that group.
Do you love to sing? Come join the Summer Choir! Here is how it works: Each Sunday the choir is scheduled to sing, we will meet in the Choir Room at 10:00 am prior to the Traditional Service and prepare a simple anthem and introit for worship that day. That’s it! EVERYONE is welcome and encouraged to participate, including children, families, and friends. No choral experience is required. This is an excellent opportunity for those not currently participating in the Chancel Choir to “try out” the choir experience. There is no commitment to continue in the fall. Join us! Upcoming dates for Summer Choir are: 7/2, 7/9, 7/16, 7/23, 8/6, 8/13 & 8/20.

The Chancel Choir sings weekly on Sundays during Traditional Worship at 10:45 a.m. from September to May. The choir also prepares for a combined music ministry Christmas Concert in December as well as an annual Palm Sunday Concert, featuring choral/orchestral masterpieces. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings (September through May) from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm. Choir is open to ANYONE who has ever wanted to sing- all ages are encouraged! Prior choral experience is very helpful, but the only requirement is the desire to make a joyful noise to the Lord as we lead His people in worship. New members are always welcome at any point during the season. Please check in to see how you may use your voice to the glory of God.
