Sanctuary Choir

The Sanctuary Choir focuses on vocal technique, musical skill-building, and ensemble skills. New members are always welcome as musical proficiency is not required. Members include both accomplished singers and musicians as well as those who have a passion for singing and limited or no formal choral experience. Our mission is to enhance the worship experience as we praise God through song.

Currently we are recording hymns to be played during our streamed Sunday services. Christine records the organ track which is sent to all who wish to join us. You may sing the melody regardless of your natural vocal range, or choose to sing any of the four parts. We have some members who sing multiple tracks to sing both tenor and bass, or soprano and alto. After you record your track(s), you send back to Christine to edit/incorporate into the final “full” choral piece to be used in our services. Our repertoire scheduled this season includes both sacred and secular music, focusing on current composers and arrangements with a traditional flair.

Cocktails and Choirs Continue

New members welcome: no singing required! We continue to meet Wednesday evenings via Zoom at 6 PM to check-in, talk about what we would like from our music ministry, and yes, sing some hymns, however the only one you hear is Christine when we sing. Come join us to find out how and why.

THIS ENSEMBLE IS OPEN TO ALL, REGARDLESS OF EXPERIENCE

Please contact Christine Hogan for more information.

Music is the sea on which our worship floats, warming our hearts and inspiring our life together at The Dover Church. If you love to sing or play an instrument, we have a place for you.

Rev. Dr. Max Olmstead preaching

At the center of worship in our Christian tradition is the sermon, a time to reflect on where God’s Word intersects, informs, enriches and directs our lives. In the sermon our in-house theologian, our pastor, seeks to help people see themselves and their lives in the light of God’s love and command to love others.
