God's Open House

Music

Music is an integral part of every worship service. We believe that music is a gift from God. Realizing that we are all called to make a joyful noise, we encourage congregational singing and participation for all ages and ability levels. We offer a wide range of ensembles, instruments and opportunities, as well as special services and performances designed to provide community outreach and mission support through music. We hope you will join us in at least one of these wonderful ways!

 

Sanctuary Choir

We rehearse every Thursday evening from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m., with an “Expresso” rehearsal on Sundays at 9 a.m. The Adult Choir sings at 10 a.m. worship two or three Sundays a month from September to June.
