Choir & Music Ministries

The Hilltop Lakes Choir is open to everyone who is willing to be committed to serving the Lord through this ministry, doesn’t mind some work, likes to learn, and enjoys laughter and friendship.

The overarching goals of the choir are to glorify God and to build up the congregation—including building up one another within the choir.

Choirs have been a part of Christian worship for almost two thousand years and, prior to that, were as long-established as David and the Psalms. As choir members, we are honored and humbled to be a part of a ministry unto God and his people with such a heritage and living purpose.

The choir sings every Sunday (with occasional exceptions) and also presents extended programs at Easter and Christmas. We sing a variety of types of choral literature, drawing from the past and the present. Our weekly rehearsal time is 9:30 on Sunday mornings. As we approach Easter or Christmas, we also add rehearsal times on Wednesdays—usually at 7 p.m.—and then the dress rehearsals for special programs will typically be on a Wednesday or Saturday.

You do not have to be able to read music to be a part of the choir—some of our members do, some do not. But anyone will probably learn to read music, to some degree, just by participating in the choir. Like any good choir, we do not just “learn songs,” but we work on various aspects of singing: breath support, tone, intonation, diction, expression, and other techniques. We also explore the meaning of the texts we sing, as we seek to proclaim the Gospel with the greatest clarity and understanding that we can.

And we have a great time doing all of this. We support one another, enjoy our friendships, laugh a lot, and experience the joy of the Lord.

You are invited! And you will find the choir to be a welcoming group.
