Choirs and ensembles at Covenant are an opportunity to use your musical gifts to glorify God in worship and assist in congregational leadership. Each ensemble presents a wide range of selections that support the worship theme. They also provide opportunities of fellowship with others in our congregation and chances to reach out to surrounding communities to share the gift of music.
We offer many opportunities to get involved in music ministry. We have choirs for all ages, with options for the novice to the experienced musician. Our live band in the contemporary worship is another venue for musicians at Covenant. Instrumentalists can use their skill throughout the church year to enhance worship as well as share with Covenant’s wide variety of small group events.
Our Sanctuary Choir participates regularly in the traditional worship services. This choir sings a wide range of music and welcomes all singers, regardless of ability. This includes larger events like concerts with other ensembles at Covenant, collaborations with other churches, and singing with instrumental ensembles to present choral masterworks. No audition is required, and weekly rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m, August through May.
