Music Ministry Opportunities:

 

Cantors

 

Cantors lead the congregation in sung prayer at weekend and holiday liturgies. Cantor Training and support is available by appointment. Whether you are an experienced singer or are seeking a way to support the community you love through song, Cantor Ministry is a volunteer ministry for all! Please contact Kelly Dudley, Director of Music, with any questions or to express interest.

 

Pianists and other instrumentalists

Do you play the piano? Maybe another type of instrument? Do you enjoy making music with others? Our community is always looking for new musicians to join us. If you’d like to offer your musical gifts in our community, please contact Kelly.

 

CHOIR IS BACK!!

No Experience is necessary to join the choir. The only requirements are a love of music and the ability to spread joy to those around you!! Everyone can perform Music! It is a skill that is acquired through time, dedication, risk taking, and practice. Our choirs are a safe place where all voices are welcome and cherished, no matter their experience level. Built on the foundation of community, our choirs are a safe place to grow your voice and take your love of music to new heights! If you have any questions please contact Kelly Dudley in the Parish Office. We look forward to filling our choir loft with joyful noise and smiling faces!
