The music ministry is an important aspect of the worship experience at Christ Covenant Church. There are many musical opportunities for all ages to become involved in.
It’s always a special treat whenever the Stuart Memorial Handbell Choir performs. The adult handbell choir was started in 1982 with a gracious donation of a three octave set of handbells. Since then, two more additions have given us a complete five octave set of handbells. In addition, through generous donations, we have been able to buy a five octave set of HandChimes. The bell choir presents public concerts on occasion and has been involved in local and national festivals.
While our worship hymns are generally sung to pipe organ accompaniment using “The Hymnal for Worship and Celebration” (an excellent collection of traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs), every few weeks our Worship Team leads the congregational singing at our 10:30 service. Our music ministry also often includes the individual talents of our members. On any given Sunday, our worship may be enhanced by the addition of a flute, violin or percussion accompaniment to the choir, a child’s piano solo, or the offering of a special vocal number by a member of our congregation.
Christ Covenant Church offers lots of musical opportunities for the kids, too! In 1990, a full set of Orff instruments (xylophone and rhythm type barred instruments) was purchased through the memorial fund and dedicated in memory of our former music director, Barbara Kaler. The handchimes are also used to teach the children the basics of handbell playing. KIDZ CHOIR rehearses on Sunday mornings prior to the start of Sunday School classes and participates in worship services every four to six weeks.
The Christ Covenant Orchestra plays on selected occasions throughout the year, usually at Christmas and Easter. Individual instrumental solo selections are often played as special music to enhance our Sunday morning worship services.
The choirs enjoy regular social events which further the fellowship within our choirs. Come be a part of the wonderful music ministry program at Christ Covenant Church!
