Music can connect us with God in ways that words alone cannot. Music stirs our souls, lifts us out of our selves, and offers us a glimpse of the divine. Our music program is one of the great joys and strengths of the First Congregational Church, and we are blessed to have many amateur and professional musicians in our congregation.

Music on Sundays draws largely from the western tradition of sacred music, and periodically features more contemporary and multi-cultural offerings. A talented adult choir of 15-20 amateurs and paid soloists, led by our Minister of Music, is accompanied by our Johnson Organ (Op. 183, 1865) and Steinway B grand piano. A bell choir, children’s choir, and seasonal concerts round out our music offerings.
