The philosophy of First Presbyterian Church is that our Music Ministry provide ample opportunity for anyone who wishes to serve the Lord through the sharing of musical gifts and talents. No matter what age, there’s a choir for you here at First Presbyterian Church!

Director of Music, Hunt Cook, invites you to read the following brief overviews of our church’s music activities and find the right “fit” for you!  The act of giving time and musical talent is a wonderful way to meet new folks and participate in worship with the family of God. We hope you will come “test the waters” of our excellent choir programs.

Adult Choir (college age and above) are regular worship leaders for our Sunday morning 11:00 worship hour.  This group meets every Wednesday night 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Choir Room and at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday morning for rehearsals.  This choir sings a variety of musical styles ranging from Baroque and Classical pieces to contemporary works of well recognized present day church music composers.
