How Can I Keep From Singing?

“Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.”  – Martin Luther

Our Music Ministry purpose is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through music and to touch hearts through the experience of song. Our organist and choir lead the congregation in heartfelt musical worship to give Glory to God. The congregation sings songs of praise, thanksgiving and consecration from our songbook with selections from across the decades. You may enjoy traditional hymns played on the organ, contemporary songs played on the piano, and guest string or wind instrument soloists. We “make a joyful noise unto the Lord” (Psalm 98).

Adult Choir

The choir members sing because they love music, they enjoy the fellowship, and it is a rewarding way for them to use their natural gifts to praise God. The choir practices on Thursday nights from 7:00pm to 8:30 and Sundays at 9:15am, and sings each Sunday from September to June. In the summer, we enjoy the musical talents of vocalists and instrumentalists.

Children’s Choir

The Joyful Noise is our children’s choir.

The kids share the good news in song on various Sundays throughout the year, and practices briefly most Sundays following worship.

Music Scholars

For almost ten years our Music Scholars program has been a wonderful way to connect local high school and college students with our worshipping community. Each year several students, who receive a stipend to support their studies, add their talented voices to our adult choir.
