Music

Music Ministry

Every Sunday morning spirits respond to the music of corporate worship as the choirs lead and inspire us in singing God’s praises

Choir

The Music Ministry at Holy Trinity provides a program of graduate choirs which gives people of all ages an opportunity to grow in faith and Christian leadership through music. It is a comprehensive program which will prepare our children, young people and adults for a lifetime of service to Jesus Christ and His Church. The choir experience includes the teaching of great hymns and anthems of the Church, skills in singing and music reading, and special fellowship activities. Each of our choirs is open to and encourages new members, both the greatly experienced and the dedicated and sincere beginner. The only qualification is a true desire to be of service to God and the Church.

I am new on the Holy Trinity staff but have been in the area for over 25 years. We are in a rebuilding program at the time with lots of enthusiasm and desire to see growth both in numbers and talent. Currently we have almost 40 persons involved in choirs and I would anticipate that number to grow significantly as we look for creative ways to enhance our worship experience. We have a tremendous facility and resources to support this program.
