Worship Ministry

Our Worship Ministry encompasses a wide range of talent: vocalists, choir members and orchestra members (strings, brass, keyboards and percussionists). And, while our team is made up of a number of individual gifted musicians, we collaborate on one mission: to worship God and serve others.

Good Friday/Easter Choir

In preparation for the Easter season, we are extending a personal invitation to you! Come and sing in the choir with us for our Good Friday Service on April 19 in the evening and our Easter Sunday Service on April 21 at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary. Both services will feature our holiday orchestra. The Good Friday Service will be a combination of both the Sanctuary and Wilson Hall style music. Rehearsals will begin on Sunday, February 17 immediately following the 10:00 am service. Please contact Melissa Weaver at 412.741.4900, ext. 158 with questions or more information. Thank You so much for your interest and possibly being a part of our wonderful Lent/Good Friday/Easter Season!

Christ has died, Christ has Risen, Christ is coming again!
