The Chancel Choir is Central’s adult choir. This choir rehearses weekly on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. and sings each Sunday morning for worship (except for approximately eight weeks when they take a summer recess). In addition to the literature sung on Sunday mornings, the Chancel Choir prepares major choral works that are sung either in worship or at other times in the life of the church. Music sung in worship is intentionally diverse and includes all styles of classical music, spirituals and gospels, global music, and other standard church music. The Chancel Choir is open to college-age students and adults.
Chancel Choir Mission Statement
The Chancel Choir of Central Presbyterian Church leads worship by presenting offerings of musical, liturgical, and theological integrity that undergird the spoken ministry of the Word; they strive to faithfully interpret a diversity of expressions and forms of music; to strengthen and nourish those who gather to worship; and ultimately to glorify the Triune God, the source of all music.
