Music

 

Christ Episcopal Church has a traditional  service and choir at 11am.

In addition to singing the liturgy, the Christ Church choir performs a variety of anthems and other music. The Adult Choir sings at most Sunday traditional services and all special occasion services (e.g. Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil). Musicians with all levels of experience are urged to contribute their talents. Previous music experience is not necessary but patience, a sense of humor, commitment to rehearsals and attendance of the 11:00 a.m. Sunday morning service are helpful.
