Service in the Worship Ministry
We provide many opportunities to serve in the Worship Ministry. We offer a Worship Choir, Concert Choir, Orchestra, as well as opportunities to serve with media, ushers/greeters, and communion set up. Learn more about Worship Ministry service opportunities below.
For choir information, contact BJ McDougal.
The Worship Choir is the adult choir of Christ Presbyterian Church. This group is for adults of all ages. Our primary focus is to lead worship for our Sunday worship services. We sing anthems that draw from the rich treasure trove of music found throughout history. This non-auditioned choir welcomes people who love to lead worship and sing great choral music. Come join us!
We rehearse Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00 pm, late August through April.
The Concert Choir rehearses for our annual Handel’s Messiah Concert in the fall. If you are interested in being part of our 2023 performances, please contact BJ McDougal. Rehearsals for our 2023 performances are Wednesdays, 7:30-8:30, beginning October 4.
In addition to Handel’s Messiah, our Concert Choir performs other choral masterworks that comprise the rich tradition of choral singing throughout the centuries.
You do not have to be in the Worship Choir to participate, but you must possess an advanced level of vocal and choral skills.
The Children’s Choir participates in Worship Services periodically, as well as presenting a special Christmas play each year. Contact Angela Ikard for information about Children’s Choir.

As our eighteenth season unfolds, we anticipate yet another wonderful experience for the Christmas season. The CPC choir and orchestra along with special guest soloists will once again delight you with this special masterwork. Handel’s Messiah has become a wonderful tradition here at Christ Presbyterian Church.
This year’s performances will again be highlighted by our 17th century Flemish harpsichord. This instrument is an authentic Flemish style single manual instrument after Ruckers as designed by Marc Ducornet with all parts and materials from Atelier Marc Ducornet in Paris, custom built by Gerald Self.
It is an honor to be able to present this wonderful masterwork. This has become a Christmas tradition for many of you, and hopefully, many more in the future. “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty, God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince Of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
