Our Music Ministry
Music is essential to our worship at First Pres. Our music program caters a warm and inviting atmosphere for all ages and musical mastery. Lead by the esteemed Dr. Caroline Worra, our Music Ministry is vibrant and enriching, encompassing a wide range of genres, styles, and instruments. Our 10 AM Sunday worship features hymns, classic anthems, and rousing spirituals from our Chancel Choir, Junior Choirs, Bell Choir, and instrumentalists. Our 5 PM Sunday Chapel offers contemporary sounds for worship and reflection.
All choirs rehearse weekly. We also send out practice recordings, so if you can’t make it to our Wednesday Night Live rehearsals, you can still practice at home and join us whenever you can. All are welcome!
