The Aldersgate Music program includes a variety of choirs and ensembles and seeks to develop, in all age groups, a true sense of participation and leadership in worship. Our music is prepared as a loving and sincere offering to God on behalf of a worshiping people. All choirs are open to any person of the appropriate age who desires to participate.
O God, whom saints and angels delight to worship in heaven: Be among us who seek to honor you through art and music. Grant us new glimpses of your beauty in sight and sound and the desire to share your gift with all of the world. Amen.
