Statement: Worship and music have been linked since the beginning of both. My job is to pick and prepare music that helps both the musicians and the congregation connect to God by enhancing the act of worship with effective and affective repertoire choices. At First Congregational, you will hear something from the entire eclectic spectrum of worship music: from tribal drums, Medieval chant, Renaissance motets, Anglican anthems, gospel songs, bell choirs, and new compositions, to modern praise songs.
