Music is a gift from God. Singing and making music have long played a vital role in the life of God’s people. Worship at Calvin Church is supported and enhanced by the participation of music groups. Vocal choirs, handbell choirs, and instrumental ensembles help express our wonder before God, evoke our penitence and lament, or pronounce our joy in God’s love. For more information about a choir or ensemble, contact Ken Bos, Director of Music.
