Music


Music is an integral part of worship at First Presbyterian Church. With this in mind, we offer a fully graded vocal choir program for four-year-olds through adults. Our choirs are open to anyone wishing to participate.

The Chancel Choir is the foundation of the music ministry leading worship at the 11:00 A. M. service each Sunday. The semi-professional choir is committed to serving Christ through music, trusting God to bless their efforts of service and dedication. In addition, the choir presents an annual Festival of Lessons and Carols service each year with orchestral accompaniment. Participation is a rewarding experience and is open to amateur and professional singers.

The Cherub Choir is for pre-K and K age children and provides the opportunity to enjoy music through singing, rhythm games, and the use of rhythm instruments. The emphasis will be on creating and enjoying music.

The Chapel Choir is for first through third grade children. This choir focuses on matching pitch and basic rhythm skills and educating the children on the role of music in worship.

The Kirk Choir is for fourth through sixth grade children. Members of the Kirk Choir receive valuable training in rhythm and rhythmic movement, matching pitches and learning basic music and singing skills. The greater purpose is to foster an understanding of the role of music in worship. They participate in worship regularly.

Musical Instruments include a 30 rank Casavant pipe organ (1980) and a 5’ 10” Steinway grand piano.  Click here for the specifications:Casavant_Organ_Specifications.pdf
