The Morning Star congregation is blessed with a great variety of musical talents. Whether you just like to listen or hope to join in, music is a part of what we do. The music staff is always looking for choir members or even just the occasional instrumentalist or voice for a small ensemble.
" I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have any being. "
The Adult Choir sings three and four part anthems most weeks from September to May. The Christian music styles are varied and the choir rehearses before the service and after.
The Praise Ensemble adds special music as well as leads the congregation in songs virtually every week at the 10:30 am Service.
The Morning Star Bell Choir plays once a month at the 8:30 am Sunday service September to May. Rehearsals are Thursdays at 7:30 pm. All are welcome. No experience or music reading needed.
Our tracker pipe organ was installed and dedicated in 1988 by organ builder Martin Ott. The final set of pipes were installed in 2008 completing the full 50 rank design.
Watch the calendar for our special music services. These are especially common in the summer when the choirs are on hiatus. Watch for Jazz Sunday, Gospel Sunday and many others.
The talents of our members and special guests are showcased frequently - trumpet, clarinet, flute and violin can be heard regularly.
