Our Vision

Music at First Presbyterian Church is dedicated first and foremost to the Glory of God. Instrumental and vocal music is offered to the Lord as prayer, in thanksgiving, and in proclamation of God’s goodness to us.

The Music Ministry welcomes all who feel called by God to offer their talents in gratitude, whether one is aspiring to learn music or well accomplished in this art. Childcare is provided for all rehearsals.

Get involved:

  • Handbell Choir
  • Instrumentalists (church orchestra | instrumental soloists)
  • Celebration Choir
  • Chapel Choir
  • Women’s Ensemble
  • Men of God

Children’s Music Ministry: Children are encouraged to learn and practice music during “Wednesdays Together.” Children will play percussion instruments and sing at worship services and special events throughout the year.

  • Preschool (3yrs-PreK)
  • Elementary 

Kindermusik classes are part of the First School preschool (3-4yrs) curriculum. First School students receive a Kindermusik class each week, introducing them to instruments, musical terms, movement, and vocal skills, while developing a lifelong love of music.
