We believe that music is a primary means of expressing our praise to God. As such, we strive to provide music of the highest caliber, presented with joy and depth of purpose. Our goal is to provide all our musicians and our congregation with powerful and life-changing moments of worship through music. First Presbyterian Church is fortunate to have several excellent opportunities for its members to be involved in music ensembles. There are musical groups for all ages and abilities. These ensembles provide leadership to worship services and are a meaningful way for their members to express God's praise through music.
Our Chancel Choir is a dedicated group of choristers that joyfully provide musical leadership for the 10:00 a.m. service and special concerts. Our split chancel and Goulding and Wood pipe organ create a glorious choral sound. The chancel choir's anthems are drawn primarily from the traditional choral repertoire with a wide range of styles from this repertoire being used. We always welcome new choristers. Please come and sing with us!
The Handbell Choir at First Presbyterian Church is fortunate to play a five-octave set of Schulmerich handbells. We currently practice weekly to participate in worship services throughout the year. This is one of the most enjoyable ways to make music in the church, and new members will be warmly welcomed!
FPC is blessed to have a three-manual Goulding and Wood organ which was installed in 1998.
