Welcome to the music ministries at Hope Presbyterian Church!! Music is a highly crucial part of the worship experience and as a saying attributed to Saint Augustine says, “music is praying twice.” Our current music ministries include the Hope Presbyterian Church Choir and the Christian Women’s Fellowship Choir. However, our music ministry is not just limited to vocal music. If you play an instrument or percussion, there is a place for YOU too!
Our Chancel Choir has been an integral part of Worship Services since the church began. The Chancel Choir will continue singing anthems and leading hymns in Worship Services.
The Christian Women’s Fellowship (CWF) frequently sings as the offering is collected. The CWF brings vibrant music to the worship service.
Everyone’s ministry of music is an important ministry to the church, as we are here to sing praise to God, but also lead God’s people in singing and play a key role in leading worship. Psalm 96 says to “sing a new song to the Lord, sing to the Lord, all the Earth,” as this is our task as we share our ministry of music.
Psalm 96: 1-6 (NRSV)
O sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples.
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
he is to be revered above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
Honor and majesty are before him;
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
