Music is an integral part of the worship service and the community at First Christian Church Minneapolis. With members and visitors as choir members, handbell players, instrumentalists, vocal soloists, or just music enthusiasts, we believe our music is not only a joyful expression of worship, but another way to illuminate the scriptures we hear and the values we uphold.
Each Sunday from September through May, you can hear our Sanctuary Choir sing traditional and contemporary selections. Each of the choir’s four sections is led by a professional vocalist; at least one of these chooses a solo to sing each Sunday. Once a month, the hand bell choir plays, adding another dimension to the service. Our long-awaited organ is finally coming home and will be a part of our Sundays again beginning this fall. For special occasions, we often invite guest singers or instrumentalists to add to the worship.
We are a welcoming congregation, meeting you wherever you are in your walk and your faith. Illustrative of this is the variety of music to be heard each week. From traditional hymns to gospel, harp to drums, Baroque keyboard works to marimba solos, music at first is an enthusiastic endeavor thriving on the differences and connections in our community.
