Music

led the choir in the offertory, “Breaths” by Sweet Honey in the Rock.

Music is an important part of the life of our church. Our Director of Music Ministry, Jeremy Wagner, plans music for worship services and also directs the UU Sanctuary Choir.

Jeremy has initiated a children’s choir, Pulchram Vocem, which will be rehearsing each Sunday after worship. The goal is for the youth choir to sing at intergenerational worship services.

We are also blessed with many members who are talented musicians and singers and who willingly share their musicianship in our services and at other church gatherings with solo or ensemble performances.

Our services normally include a number of musical elements, including an opening prelude, two or three hymns from our hymnal Singing the Living Tradition, offertory music, a sung closing benediction, and a postlude.

Our talented UU Sanctuary Choir performs regularly during the regular church year from September through May. They rehearse at the church at 7 p.m. Wednesday evenings and on the Sunday mornings before they perform.

At our May 13, 2018 worship services, the offertory was an original composition
by Sam Otten titled “Better Days.” It was performed by the UUCC Band, with
Sam Otten on piano, Alan Arnold on saxophone and Sam Buffaloe on drums.
