Music

Sanctuary Choir

Choir on Ken's Last DayThis choir rehearses Wednesday nights during the school year from 7:00-8:30 PM.  Anyone from 7th grade through adults interested in “Making a Joyful Noise to the Lord” is invited to attend.  You need not have a wonderful voice, only the desire to enjoy the music and fellowship.  The choir has become a close-knit family and shares their joys and sorrows.  They are always hoping to enlarge that family and welcome newcomers!  They also have two fun parties a year.

Children's Music

childrenThe children up to third grade sing on Sunday mornings during the school year as part of Church School . Stephen Bouma, our Director of Music, and Lyn Bouma, along with Tara Obner, teach this part of Church School. This is a group which performs on a regular basis for Sunday worship.

Older elementary age children  sing for some special occasions over the course of the year. Their rehearsals are  individually scheduled.

Parents, please consider how much singing and music feed the souls of young people, and plan to help them take part.

Bell Choir

Music in Worship

choir3First Central Church is home to a 3000-pipe Aeolian-Skinner organ, a 7-foot  Yamaha  concert grand piano, a  harpsichord  and a marimba which are used to accompany services.  Both volunteers and professionals regularly sing or play solos  for Sunday morning worship, and we often have  musicians from outside the congregation join us.  This contributes to a  wide variety of music for worship. Listen to our organ.
