Worship Through Song

Music moves the heart and feeds the soul. If this is a particular talent of yours, or you just love to sing, we invite you to sing with us. We have everything from amateurs to world-class musicians. They all share a contagious enthusiasm for the beauty and power of music in worship.

Joyful Noise Choir and Bell Choir: preschool and elementary aged children rehearse Sundays during Wiggle Worship and Treasure Finders. (See Children's Ministry). Katie Wynkoop will work with our Treasure Finder kids (ages 3 - 5th grade) each week at 10:10am after they leave Gathering in Fellowship Hall. Wiggle Worship children from our 11am service will also have choir practice with Katie. Please contact Katie with any questions.

Special artists: worship services often include special guests from both within and outside of the congregation. Instrumentalists, smaller vocal ensembles, and more...  

 

A special way to connect with the community.

We love music. We love variety. We love reaching out to the whole community.

Covenant Presbyterian is lucky enough in connecting it all to compassion - our concert series has free admission; Love offerings go to benevolent causes such as Harmony Camp scholarships, Salvation Army, Faith Mission, OSPCA, CATCH Court, and Doctors Without Borders.

Our Concert Series has featured our own Campanile Handbell Ensemble, artists from teen and adult a capella groups to virtuoso organ to ProMusica cellists to jazz quartets (Grammy Award-winning Dave Powers, who often plays for worship, too) to flute to the PresbyChicks trio to artists who showcase show tunes as well as classical pieces and a Variety Show featuring Covenant friends and family performing zany feats to raise money for mission.
