Music Ministry

The music ministry at First Congregational Church aspires to “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into His presence with singing.” (Psalm 100:1-2) All are welcome to participate in this ministry. Our church is blessed with fine instruments: a Mohler pipe organ and a Yamaha grand piano.

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir sings every Sunday from September through early June, as well as at special worship services. We rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7-8:30 p.m.

Listen to a sample: "On Christmas Night"
