"The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang: “He is good; his love endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 1:13
Since Biblical times, music has been central to worship, and so it is here at FPC! We feature a variety of musical groups including; Adult Choir, Praise Band (guitar, drum, piano, vocals), Men’s Chorus, Joyful Noise (instrumental group), and Joyful Brass (brass ensemble).
Announcing the Spring Cantata
Last year the Adult Choir performed our first ever cantata "The Lord of the Dance" on the Sunday after Easter. It was a half-hour musical event with full choir, narration, and instrument ensemble. This year, the Adult Choir will be presenting our second cantata on Sunday, April 8. We would love to have you join the choir for this performance! This program is very accessible to all singing abilities and is a wonderful chance to sing in a choir without the year-long commitment. Rehearsals will be Wednesday evenings at 8:15pm in the sanctuary beginning January 10, 2018. For more information please contact Andy Estervig via email (click here).
Here’s some info that you’ll need: Adult Choir meets on Wednesday nights from 7:00–8:15pm, and Andy Estervig, our choir director, is looking for singers of all ages to join in the fun! Everyone is welcome, new singers too. You can start on any Wednesday!
Joyful Noise Instrumental Ensemble meets on Thursdays at 7:00pm and began rehearsing on September 7. Sam Robinson is looking for instrumentalists of all skill levels and would love to hear from you if you have any questions about being a part of Joyful Noise.
Finally, if you are interested in learning more about First Praise (our second-service worship team), Nancy Groeneveld, FPC's first ever Director of Worship and Music, would love to have the opportunity to connect with you! We are looking for instrumentalists and vocalists, as well as people who can serve at the sound/video console. I know that there are some singers and instrumentalists in our congregation who have been waiting for an opportunity to explore being a part of the praise team—here’s your invitation!
