Music

Our traditional choral music is a very important part of our worship.

Our choir director, George McCracken, has extensive experience in classical church music. Our music is fairly traditional with occasional contemporary pieces. We use both The Hymnal 1982 and Wonder, Love, and Praise. Recent anthems include pieces by Bach, Goss, Handel, Mozart and Mr. McCracken himself.

Our choir generally sings in four-part harmony. They gather to rehearse at 9 am Sunday mornings and occasionally at other times for special events. We always welcome new voices to our choir.

Our organist, Kristi Reynolds, is a highly-skilled musician, and often plays very demanding pieces for the prelude and postlude of our services.

Each year, members of our choir join with singers from other churches in the community in a Unity Choir to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
