The Mission of Emmanuel’s Music Ministry
“Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our Salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music & song. For the Lord is the great God, the King above all gods.” Psalm 93:1-3
Made for Worship
Our prime and privileged task is to worship the God who made us, and to proclaim Jesus as the Savior and Hope of the world. The mission of the ministry through music is to aid the congregation in worshiping God. Through hymns, liturgical service music, choral anthems, ensembles, solos, the focus is to be on God. Music is an offering to God. The choir is the heartbeat of our music ministry. The choir members volunteer and provide devoted leadership in all areas of our worship. Music at Emmanuel offers community outreach with Jazz service every 2nd Sunday at 5PM, Sept. – June.
Worship the Lord with a music mix of styles and artists at Emmanuel
Emmanuel’s worship is an eclectic mix with traditional hymnody and service music at its core.
Music on a given Sunday might include hymns from The Hymnal 1982, Lift Every Voice along with other more recent hymn collections, service music in a traditional style, Taizé chants, folk hymns, African-American spirituals, and praise songs. While music from our organ is a staple, other instruments employed might include guitar, or Piano. Sometimes we also sing unaccompanied.
