An ancient leader of the church once said, “the person who sings prays twice.” That speaks to the importance of music within the life of faith. Music uniquely connects us to matters of the spirit, enriching our worship and our prayer. Music also connects us to one another.
Singing in the choir was an important part of my religious upbringing and I’ve always enjoyed being able to actively contribute to Sunday worship. I also get to share the experience with my mother which is special.
At FBCH, there is a place for you to participate in making music.

I like Songsters because I like singing.
Read more about our pipe organ (read more about our Casavant Opus #1994 organ). At FBCH, you will also hear the Yamaha grand piano purchased by the congregation for our 190th anniversary in 2017.
If you would like to volunteer an instrumental solo or group in a Service, please contact Lynette.
Our sanctuary also hosts a number of community concerts throughout the year.
Singing with others develops deep bonds among the singers harmonizing together. I believe that God created music in all creation to give richness and harmonious depth to our relations with all of creation.
