We are a vibrant ministry within the church and are always seeking new members. Are you passionate about singing or playing an instrument? Do you feel called to serve God in community?

Being an open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, our music ministry is a diverse group of people. We invite all to full involvement in ministry regardless of ability, age, ancestry, family or economic status, gender, sexual orientation,spiritual path, cultural origin, or any other visible or invisible difference.

A PERSONAL WELCOME from our Music Director

Skyline is a wonderful place to make music and the people are what make the experience magical. There is a wealth of experience and expertise, but the spirit of collaboration makes those distinctions disappear. The congregation sings a mix of traditional hymns, familiar songs that we do regularly (printed in our own homemade mini-hymnals) and new music which is learned with the leadership of the choir.

We often have soloists as part of our service, most often our own choir members who provide a wonderful accompaniment to the offering. We are eager to welcome guest soloists (either singers or instrumentalists) and eager to collaborate with musicians of all kinds. Our choir is a regular and important part of services and we are always eager to welcome new singers. The choir practices 2 to 4 part music every week and sings these more challenging pieces usually for important dates in the calendar. I provide recordings to learn the music, so singers can feel confident singing even if they don’t read music. On other weeks, the choir learns simpler, upbeat music.
