Our MUSIC PROGRAM
We honor the sacred through our long tradition of fine choral and instrumental music. Music has always been a cornerstone of our worship services. We embrace a diversity of musical styles and cultures. Our repertoire includes western classical, American composers, folk music and more. Music is a universal language, and, with people around the world each week, we celebrate and express our faith through the singing of hymns, anthems, and solos, accompanied by pipe organ, piano, harpsichord, and a variety of other fine instruments.
Our choral music program features talented volunteers from our congregation who make up our 30 person choir. We also enjoy welcoming special guest musicians on a regular basis. Once a month, our Children's Choir shares their musical gifts during a Sunday service. A focus of our music ministry is celebrating and showcasing the talents of our congregation.
