In the New Revised Standard Version version of the bible, Psalm 105:2 reads, “Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wonderful works.”
Music is a very important part of the worship service at South Branch Reformed Church. It is through the Music Ministry that the congregation is encouraged to be lifted up in praise to Almighty God. While the congregation participates in the service through singing hymns, the members of our choirs allow the congregation to hear specially selected pieces and to reflect on them as they are performed.
Below is a listing of the different Music Ministries currently offered at South Branch Reformed Church. Each member of these choirs is a volunteer and spends quite a bit of time rehearsing. The Adult Choir participates in the worship service each Sunday from September through June. The other choirs participate in worship services and holiday celebrations throughout the year. We are always look for more people to join.
