Music is such a powerful way to express our spirituality, and so we strive to “make a joyful noise” through a variety of groups and styles of music. During Sunday morning worship, we sing both old and new hymns, praise songs, and world music.
The Very Occasional Men’s Choir encourages men and boys of any age who love to sing to join them. This eclectic gathering of gentlemen (sometimes as many as 12-15 strong) sing in worship a few times each year. Though they participate with minimal rehearsal time, they are always willing to take on the challenge of learning the music at hand simply for the joyful pleasure of singing!
We also invite guest musicians to participate in worship with us a couple of times a month. We have had a ukulele orchestra, a classical oboist, and jazz guitarist join us. We also encourage area college and high school students to share their musical gifts with us in a safe and accepting venue.
