MUSIC AND WORSHIP
Music serves an important role in the corporate worship of the Lord and in the community life here at First Presbyterian Church. We are called to worship together across generations and we seek to foster a creative environment where members of all ages share their talents with one another and with our community for the glory of the Creator who bestows their musical gifts.
Music has a unique quality that speaks to our souls, touches the depths of who we are, and raises us toward the throne of God. It’s a crucial component in all our corporate worship services – whether it be anthems by our Chancel Choir or the Covenant Children’s Choir, vocal solos, instrumental music, or the singing of congregational hymns and psalms. Musically praising God is a powerful way to follow the Biblical instruction to worship Him in spirit and in truth.
The Chancel Choir faithfully contributes to and inspires our morning worship services. At Christmas and at Easter beautiful special music enhances our celebrations of these significant seasons in the Christian year.
The Covenant Children’s Choir program for 2nd – 6th graders educates the children in the various aspects of corporate worship and prepares them to serve as musical worship leaders in our morning worship services several times during the year.
We offer some unique and popular musical programs each year for our congregation and the people of the Prattville community. The River Region Sacred Music Festival each February brings together singers from many churches and denominations to learn from exceptional guest clinicians/conductors and it concludes with a free concert which is always a musical highlight of the year. Each December, our church hosts the annual “Pipin’ Hot for Christmas” concert by area musicians… another exciting opportunity for the Prattville community to be blessed by excellent music.
