“Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in yourheart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Eph. 5:19-20
Music has been a vital part of worship and the total ministry of Stanton Reformed Church. We believe music is a gift from God that is used to glorify God, uplift the worshipper, and give expression to our faith. We don’t consider the music included in worship to be a “performance”, but rather a gift given to honor God with our gratitude for God’s gifts to us. Music calls us to worship, leads us in praise and prayer, and sends us out into the world challenged and strengthened for service.
Most weeks, our worship is enriched by the members of the Sanctuary Choir, under the direction of Megan Petrushun. Choir is a fun, relaxed experience and an opportunity for deep and meaningful community. We rehearse on Thursday evenings, 7:30-9:00PM, and sing most Sunday mornings throughout the fall, winter, and spring. If you like to make a joyful noise, you’re welcome to join the choir at any time.
We also have opportunities throughout the year to participate in bell choir and other instrumental groups. If you have a gift for a certain instrument, please reach out – we love finding new ways for our members to make and share in our joyful noise! To find out more about how you can join this ministry, please contact Megan Petrushun, Director of Music Ministry, at mpetrushun
There are also ways for artists, writers, and those interested in drama and dance to share their gifts in worship. If you have a talent you’d like to share, please reach out to our Worship Committee through our church office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
