Music

Music has always been an important expression of our faith here at Trinity.  We like to sing hymns from both the More Voices supplement and the Voices United hymn books as well as a few others we throw in just for fun elaine hands at piano may 08and our worship includes a variety of sung responses that we generally keep for a season so we have a chance to learn them well. Usually the words are projected on our screens but there are hymn books in the pews for those who like to be able to follow along with the notes. Our music is accompanied most Sundays by a pianist on a baby grand piano. Many weeks we are fortunate to have a volunteer who plays the organ and/or volunteer drummers who add variety to the accompaniment. Sometimes we are blessed with other instruments such as a flute or guitars.

Trinity has two choirs which contribute greatly to our music program.

The Senior Choir offers an anthem most Sundays during the offertory. They meet on Thursday evenings at 7:30 from September to May and new members are always welcome.

Trinity’s children’s music program is directed by Jennifer Baker. The Junior Choir sings in church about once a month during the school year. Children from age 4 to 12 are most welcome. Check back here in September for the 2017/2018 schedule.  Rehearsal CDs and lyrics will be available from the church office in early September.

If you play an instrument or are interested in learning more about drumming, please let us know in the church office (204-857-4471 or trinityu@mts.net) so we can incorporate your gifts into our music program.
