If Music Can’t Be Sung…

“…if music can’t be sung, then it ceases to be music. It certainly ceases to be sacred music. Sacred music must be able to be in some way sung, because from a Christian point of view the Word must be heard. Music is the extension of the Word, not a frilly decoration of the Word. It is at the service of the Word, as in all traditions.

Sir John Tavener (1944-2013)

Are you a tenor looking for a church choir near Stow, Ohio? If so, we’d like to talk with you! 🙂 Of course we accept all voice parts, but tenors are especially welcome. We rehearse Thursday evenings 7:30-9:00 p.m. and sing in the 10:45 a.m. Sunday worship service.

We are a fun-loving group, and we make some pretty nice music too, all with the aim of glorifying God! Here is the church’s mission statement:

Mission Statement
We believe and proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior.
We strive as a community of believers to share the love of God with others, as taught by the scriptures and illuminated by the Holy Spirit.
