Worship & Music Ministry
'Next to God's word', Martin Luther wrote in 1538, 'the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world. It controls our hearts, minds, and spirits'.
The purpose of our music ministry is to glorify God - through music. If you enjoy singing; or ringing bells, there is a place for you in our music ministry! We have many talented people who enjoy working together to provide a wide variety of musical styles, groups and songs to enhance our church services.
Music is how we express ourselves when words alone are not enough. ERPC’s music encompasses traditional hymns, anthems, and contemporary songs; always engaging our congregation. We cherish the gift of music as we prepare to praise God in worship each week. Whether we are singing together as a congregation or sharing in a worshipful moment of reflection during a solo or ensemble piece, we cherish the gift of music as we prepare to praise God in worship each week.
"...Praise God with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and lyre; Praise Him with tambourine and dancing, praise Him with the strings and flute; Praise Him with the clash of cymbals, praise Him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." - Psalm 150
ERPC is blessed with a very talented and active music department. Our primary performance groups are our Sanctuary Choir, Praise Team, and Bell Choir.
The Adult Choir meets on Wednesday evenings at 6.00 for lively and laughter-filled rehearsals. New members are always welcome; no audition is required, just a love of singing and Praising God!
The Praise Team serves every Sunday at both the 9:30am and 5:00pm by complimenting both worship services with more contemporary praise music. Our constantly evolving team is always looking for more people of all ages to partner with our team.
Our Bell Choir provides beautiful music during the Christmas and Easter Seasons, as well as a few other special times during the church year.
