UCC SENECA VALLEY MUSIC PROGRAM

John Touchton, Director of Music Ministry

 

We are committed to a dynamic, creative music ministry in all aspects of worship. Music has a way of speaking to us when the written word seems insufficient. The Music Ministry of the United Church of Christ of Seneca Valley (UCCSV) exists to enrich the spiritual journeys of all people with the joy and inspiration of music.

Music at UCCSV is used in worship as an instrument to teach, comfort, inspire and evangelize. It serves in part as a vital expression of our faith, encourages us to treat others with dignity and respect, strengthens our commitment to social justice and service, and reminds us that we are part of a caring community that provides places of connection for all people.

 

Musical Opportunities

CHILDREN’S CHOIR

Children’s Choir rehearses each Sunday at 11:15 AM and provides music during the worship service about once a month throughout the year. During rehearsals the choristers learn to sing anthems and hymns. All children are welcomed (including children who haven’t had prior musical experience or who play an instrument).  We also utilize a collection of Studio 49 Orff Instruments in this ensemble.

CHANCEL CHOIR

Rehearsal: Thursday 7:30 – 9:00 PM; Sunday 9:00 AM

Chancel Choir rehearses weekly and sings every Sunday at the 10:00 AM worship service from September through May.  The Choir also sings for services at Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, During Lent and Holy Week.  Repertoire for this ensemble consists of a wide range of styles including classical, spirituals, hymn arrangements, gospel, traditional, and some contemporary works.

 

If you would like to learn more about ways to participate in the musical life of the church or are interested in joining either of the choral ensembles at UCCSV, please contact JOHN TOUCHTON at johnrt777@aol.com.
