We draw on The Hymnal 1982, Lift Every Voice and Sing; Wonder, Love and Praise and other resources.  Our volunteer choir helps lead our 10 AM service on Sunday and on occasion with our contemporary musical group, Glorify.

Worship is the core gathering of our faith family; it informs everything else that we do.  As part of a recent Church Renovation Project, we replaced our Moeller Pipe Organ Console.  We also completely re-leathered our organ; this project finished a decades-long effort to restore our primary instrument.
