Covenant choirs are a great way to develop friendships and a sense of community while serving God and our members. Our choirs perform a wide range of selections that support and reflect the sermon theme. The musical styles differ depending on the service you are attending.
We offer many opportunities to get involved in music ministry. We have choirs for adults and kids, with options for the novice to the experienced musician. Our live band in the contemporary worship is another venue for musicians at Covenant.
Our Sanctuary Choir, with about 65 singers, offers music in the 9:30 and 11 a.m. Sanctuary Worship Services. This choir sings an artistic yet eclectic range of music from 16th-century Latin motets to 21st-century anthems, African-American spirituals, ethnic songs and gospel arrangements. Covenant’s Sanctuary Choir welcomes all singers, regardless of ability.
No audition is required, and rehearsals are Wednesdays, 7:30–9:30 p.m., in the chapel (FE 100).
