The Chancel Choir leads our congregation in worship with inspiring renditions of our hymns and anthems in four-part harmony. Comprised of over thirty members and supported by four staff singers, this ensemble has a strong mission of offering dynamic worship through choral music, equipping our singers to an embodied, dedicated ministry through music. All adults (high school age and beyond) are invited to join the Chancel Choir. Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 9:00. Practice recordings are provided.
Since 2021, our choral scholarship program provides paid internships for collegiate music students to serve as section leaders in our choir. We currently support three RI College voice majors and one recent graduate, welcoming these young music professionals to assist our staff in leading the church’s ministry of music.
God has called you to be a worship leader. You have the tools to bring hymns to life on the lips and in the hearts of the people. Your manner of singing and playing interprets the truth of the hymn texts so that thoughts, as well as feelings, are more completely engaged.
Remember, you are here to help facilitate the performance of every worshiper before God.
(Paraphrased from the preface to our hymnal, the Trinity Hymnal, Revised Edition)
