Music & Media
The Music Ministry
prepares those to whom God has given
the gift of music for leadership in the worship services of the
church. Training is offered to our children and youth to
give them a knowledge and love of music that allows them to fully
participate in worship as they grow to maturity. Training
and service is offered by the Music Ministry in these areas:

choir of more than one hundred voices leads in both morning services
of the church. At special services throughout the year the
choir sings the larger works of the great choral literature, accompanied
by orchestra and organ.

are assembled on an on call basis to lead in the evening worship.
These offer members who are too busy to make a regular commitment
to the adult choir an opportunity to lead in worship.
