Covenant Music

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 community with others in our congregation and serve while sharing 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.
