Worshiping God through Music
Music is an integral part of many of our programs and ministries. Under the overall direction of Kiersten Drynan, our Director of Music, we offer a varied musical expression in both traditional and contemporary styles. Our musical programs involve different age groups including children, youth and adults.
During certain seasons of the year and in conjunction with special events, we often present special musicals. We are always looking for new members to supplement our current volunteers. Our major expectation for all of participants is simply that they enjoy their experience.
Our Church Choir is made up of volunteers who sing in four-part harmony: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. Practices are held on Thursday evenings at 7:30pm and usually last 1 – 2 hours. The Choir provides leadership for congregational singing during the formal portion of the Sunday Worship Service. The Choir also presents a special musical selection on most Sundays. At Christmas and Easter, the choir welcomes additional volunteers who join in presenting a cantata or musical as the focus for the entire worship service.
Our Praise Team in made up of volunteer singers and musicians. The composition of the Praise Team is largely determined by the talent and interest of the volunteers although we strive to include at least keyboard/piano, guitars and percussion accompaniment along with a vocal group of 3-4 people. Rehearsals are held each Sunday morning at 9:30am. The Praise Team provides leadership for congregational singing of contemporary songs and choruses. The words for these selections are projected on a screen for the congregation by PowerPoint.
