"Sing to the Lord" the Psalter invites us time and time again! The Music Ministry of First Presbyterian Church seeks to answer God's call to "make a joyful noise" with opportunities for all ages and skill levels in the church.
FPC enjoys the rich talents of our congregation with members who offer their time as singers, handbell ringers, and instrumentalists in worship and concert events each year. There is a place for everyone in the FPC Music Ministry. Additionally, the music ministry is supported through generous contributions to the music special fund which provides for professional musicians and ensembles to frequently join with us for worship and other special events.
The Chancel Choir provides the primary musical leadership for worship at First Presbyterian Church. This volunteer adult group, with varying musical backgrounds, presents a wide variety of repertoire from standard church music, spirituals and gospel, to music by new composers.
The Chancel Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m. No audition is required. The choir is directed by Beth Thompson, Interim Director of Music.
Chapel Singers is a small select choir is for experienced, trained singers from the Chancel Choir who want the extra challenge and are willing to give the extra time required to perform the demanding works particularly suited to the smaller ensemble. An audition is required. Contact Beth Thompson, Interim Director of Music for more information.
The youth choir is open to all youth in grades 6-12 regardless of musical training or experience. The choir rehearses each Sunday of the academic year from 9:00 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. and sings in the 10:50 a.m. worship service approximately six times per year. In addition to regular worship leadership, the youth choir enjoys several social events and trips throughout the year, often in conjunction with a service mission or major conference participation.
