“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”
— Colossians 3:16

Music at Westminster Presbyterian Church

WE REJOICE IN SONG!

At Westminster Presbyterian, music is an integral part of our fellowship as a church family, and should be open to all who desire to worship Christ through music.

We seek to incorporate a variety of musical worship traditions each Sunday. The Music Ministry is dedicated to offering opportunities for everyone who is interested in enriching worship through music.

Each of our musical ensembles seek to educate and spiritually invigorate all participants who give their time so graciously to this vital ministry. We offer opportunities for both instrumental and vocal music, and for children, youth and adults.

Everyone is encouraged to be a part of the Music Ministry at Westminster!  

If you are interested in being a part of one of our music ensembles, please take the time to read about them.
