Music at Ellington Congregational Church

"Where there is devotional music, God is always at hand with His gracious presence."

(Johann Sebastian Bach)

Musical ensembles assist the prayer of the community at worship services throughout the year: Senior Choir, Senior Bells, Junior Choir, Junior Bells, Chime Choir and Sacred Dance.  In addition to these ensembles, vocal and instrumental soloists regularly offer their time and talent in praise of God on Sunday mornings.

Sing to God, sing praises to His name
Lift up a song to Him who rides through the deserts
His name is the Lord, exult before him!

Senior Choir     

Sing to Him
Sing praises to Him
Tell of all His wonderous works!

The adult choir, under the direction of the Director of Music, sings at worship services from September through June.  Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7:30 – 9:00 pm.  Membership in the Senior Choir is open to anyone in grade 7 or older.
