So much can be said about the importance of music in the bible, especially in the Psalms. Ministry through music can occur during the morning worship service, playing carols outdoors at Christmas time, or during an evening of praise and worship.
The Salvation Army is devoted to developing a strong music program. Brass banding has been a Salvation Army favorite and continues to be a blessing to many. The Songsters (choir) have a wonderful blend of male and female voices which will touch your heart.
Worshiping our Lord through music is such a privilege and we truly hope you will join us!
Blending the music of cornets, flugal horn, alto horns, baritones, euphoniums, trombones, and tubas creates a marvelous atmosphere of worship. From upbeat marches to soul-searching hymns, the band has a great variety of favorites.
The talent of the group has afforded us many engagements outside of the church. Often the band splits up into smaller groups whether for the Christmas season or other occasions. This allows the band more flexibility to play in nursing homes, street corners, store fronts, neighborhoods, parades, and much more.
The band meets every Wednesday night at 7:30 to practice for upcoming engagements. Newcomers are always encouraged and may come on Wednesday night to join us. Usually the Wednesday night rehearsal is discontinued during the summer.
A balance of basses, tenors, altos, and sopranos provide a delightful choir of voices. Whether accompanied by piano, CD, or singing acappella, the Songsters provide wonderful words of insight to the congregation.
The Songsters meet every Wednesday night at 6:30 for rehearsal. They are always looking for more singers and we encourage you to join. What a wonderful blessing it is for the singer to lift up his voice to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
