Worship & Music

Choirs & Ensembles

Through instrument and song, the Music Ministry of Christ Presbyterian Church welcomes the community, inspires worship, and nurtures spiritual growth as we celebrate and glorify Creator God, Redeeming Savior, and Holy Spirit.

Artful worship in Music Ministry is a long-standing tradition at Christ Presbyterian Church. In addition to traditional choral and handbell music, we place a special emphasis on congregational singing and desire all to participate. If you have musical gifts that you would like to share by participating in Christ Presbyterian’s Music Ministry, please read about each ensemble below.
