MINISTRY OF MUSIC
Old Dutch Church lays a great emphasis upon music and we have a magnificent organ and Musical program that is a regular part of our Worship Service. We believe that it is delightful to praise God through music and the congregation is invited to sing along to hymns as hymn books are provided in all of the pews. There is also the passive enrichment of listening to one of Old Dutch Church’s wonderful choirs and the great Moeller Pipe Organ throughout the Worship Service.
We sincerely invite you to be a part of our Senior Choir which sings during two Sunday services each month and whose members enjoy great fellowship. The Senior Choir leads the congregation in worship and praise. Senior Choir rehearsals are Thursday evenings at 7:00pm in the second floor Choir room. ALL interested singers of any experience are welcome!
The Old Dutch Church Handbell Choir is an ensemble of musical talents who perform on holidays. It is a truly unique experience to listen to Handbells fill the Sanctuary with their angelic sound and it is delightful to watch the intricate visual display as they are being played. The Handbell Choir is open to individuals of all ages and experience levels. Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings at 6:00pm (HANDBELLS WILL RESUME FOR EASTER SOON!)
Our new Hymnals, entitled "Life Up Your Hearts: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs" were donated to the Congregation by the Ruch Family Foundation and members of the Church dedicated books to loved ones. If you would like to learn more about our music ministry, please click here. If you would like to donate towards the purchase of additional hymnals in memory of a loved one, please contact the Church office 338-6759 or click here. We incorporate music into the Sunday School program as much as possible. Every Spring there is a Children's Sunday worship service devoted to the little ones of the Church's talents and achievements!
