Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty firmament! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his surpassing greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with clanging cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that breathes praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
Psalm 150 (NRSV)
A wise man once said true change and new life occurs each time the Word of God pierces the heart of a human being. He believed that the gospel of Jesus Christ, truly heard, brought about such change. He also believed that music was the tool that could soften hearts, and the key that could open the doors of hearts to allow the Word of God to penetrate and be heard.
Musical ministries are crucial in the life of Rossford United Methodist Church. Our choir, musicians, and soloists provide a backdrop against which the Word of God may be heard. We hope and pray that you will find yourself touched and change because of the gift of music they bring.
Chancel Choir provides leadership and anthems for the Sunday morning worship service from the Sunday following labor day through the first week of June. The choir usually enjoys a rest while the youth lead the service the last Sunday of the month. Our Choir is a wonderful spiritual family and their 30 plus voices are open to all who love to sing and are between the ages of 15 (ninth grade) and 99. Music shared includes the classics, spirituals, contemporary and often blends two or more types of music together. There are also opportunities to include our children, instruments and drama at various times during the year at special services and morning worship.
The choir practices on Thursday evening in the Sanctuary from 7PM to 8PM and prepares for Sunday Worship at 10:00 AM in the Parlor.
