Music and Choir
Music is an important part of our worship services. It can speak to the soul deeply and powerfully, creating a time of beauty and reflection.
Our worship service often includes an instrumental prelude and postlude. Two to three hymns, often drawn from Singing the Living Tradition and Singing the Journey, involve the congregation in singing. Choirs or soloists often perform an anthem (a piece with lyrics that complement the service’s theme) and an offertory (a piece performed while the congregation offers donations). Instrumental interludes can also accompany times of reflection or prayer.
Whether a beginner or advanced, young or old, from harmonica to harp, we would love you to join us in making music together. Volunteer once or on a regular basis – you’ll get plenty of support.
We also host public concerts featuring contemporary folk music. The series is called Old Stone Coffeehouse. It spotlights nationally renowned musicians, playing in our historic building, with superior acoustics! The concert series benefits organizations that promote social justice.
