At least a third of our worship experience is devoted to music because it covers the full spectrum of human emotion, speaks more deeply than words, and gives wings to our devotion. We are a congregation that loves to sing and appreciates a wide range of music in our services. Our children and youth perform in our services frequently and select music for the various youth and children's services throughout the year.
In addition to the congregational hymns, music used for worship includes an anthem offering from the Sanctuary Choir and keyboard selections performed by music director, Jim Levy. Musical styles used in the service range from the most traditional to Jazz , Spiritual and Folk. Music from the Taize community is used regularly.
We are pleased to substitute music for the sermon several times a year including one Sunday in Advent, Passion/Palm Sunday; the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday, and "Singing Our Faith Sunday." Guest vocal soloists in the past have included Juanita Williams, Mary Ann Redmond, Sharon Clark, and Thembi Mtshali. Guest musicians have included some of the area's finest with both members of the National Symphony as well as top Jazz musicians
