“We worship God through music, prayer, and Word, celebrating the gifts of the spirit, nurturing our faith, and challenging our complacency. (Mission Statement)
Music can help build our faith, change the way we feel, challenge our intellect, and give us food for meditation. Singing specifically enables us all by emotions, insights, and aesthetics to become more aware of God within us. (Book of Order)
Through our music we enhance and respond to the Word of God in many ways. The Men’s Gospel Quartet offers a lovely song composed by congregant, Norma Knowlton. Young children sing an enthusiastic anthem. Bell ringers of all ages share their talents with sparkling sound. An Orff ensemble plays many instruments to enhance worship. The Adult Choir, with periodic soloists, leads the 10:30 worship service and prepares anthems, a cantata, and a Sacred Song service each year. Organists offer accompaniment and inspiration. Additional instrumentalists provide special color from time to time.
