Worship Through Music
Music is a vital part of worship, and for many of us using our musical gifts for God’s glory is the primary way we worship.
The choir rehearses on Wednesdays in the Choir Room from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. They sing for most Sunday services from September through early June as well as Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and other special services. The Chancel Choir sings a varied repertoire, spanning from renaissance to 20th-century music, spirituals, and contemporary compositions. No audition is required.
The Youth Choir sings in Sunday morning worship a number of times throughout the year. They also help plan and sing at Saturday vespers at the annual All Church Retreat and the annual Moravian Love Feast in December. In January 2023, the Youth Choir will be taking a trip over the Martin Luther King Day weekend to visit the National Museum of African American Music and other musical sights.
Both choirs meet on Wednesday evenings from September through early May. Kids can be dropped off anywhere between 5:15-5:50 for dinner in the fellowship hall.
At 6:00 we move to rehearsals where we learn about faith, worship, and music all while having fun. Kids will learn the ins and outs of our worship, how to read the hymnal, and become literate in music. We often use our collection of drums and rhythm instruments, chimes and bells, and Orff instruments. The kid’s choirs sing in worship on the 2nd Sunday of the month.
