Music

Worship encompasses everything that we do together as Christian community, including, but not limited to, what we do on Sunday mornings. We join together on Sunday mornings as a sort of touchstone which reorients our lives toward the sacred, through gathering, reading Scriptures, prayer, offering, breaking bread, and engaging in service to our community.

Adult Choir

Our adult choir provides musical leadership most Sundays at our 9:15am service. A mixed-voice choir, featuring an extensive repertoire of anthems and motets appropriate for the various seasons of the year. Drawing from a broad selection of music, we showcase the diversity of the Anglican musical tradition.
