Adult Choir Sings Every Sunday

The 10 a.m. Holy Eucharist features congregational singing and choral music, led by our Director of Music, Meredith Baker, and our talented adult choir. As our worship relates the scriptures of the day to our daily lives, the choral music also reflects the themes of the season.

Inspiration

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts unto God.  And whatsoever ye do, in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.    Colossians 3:16-17
