Song is a response which engages the whole self in prayer. Song unites the faithful in common prayer wherever they gather for worship whether in church, home, or other special place....Through the ages and from varied cultures, the church has developed additional musical forms for congregational prayer. Congregations are encouraged to use these diverse musical forms for prayer as well as those which arise out of the musical life of their own cultures. To lead the congregation in the singing of prayer is a primary role of the choir and other musicians. They also may pray on behalf of the congregation with introits, responses, anthems, and other musical forms. Instrumental music may be a form of prayer since words are not essential to prayer. In worship, music is not to be for entertainment or artistic display. Care should be taken that it not be used merely as a cover for silence.
The Adult Choir,which is composed of adults and youth, leads worship most Sundays. It rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 7:30. During the summer the Choir rehearses on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. Auditions are not required. The Organist & Choirmaster is Michael Corzine.
The Choristers are children and youth who are in grades 3-12. They rehearse at 5:00 p.m. on Sundays, directed by a Choral Scholar. The Choristers sing with the Adult Choir twice a month to lead Lord's Day worship.
The Choirmaster welcomes instrumentalists as accompanists, members of ensembles, and soloists. Please contact Michael Corzine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
