Music at ECC
We value music that exalts God the Father and His son, Jesus Christ. Our worship service typically includes hymns and arrangements as well as contemporary music.
Our services are often accompanied by classical instruments such as acoustic guitars, flutes, and stringed instruments. Worship teams rotate on a monthly basis so each week sounds a little different than the last.
The musicians who lead ECC in worship each week rehearse during the Sunday School hour.
Are you interested in joining a praise team at ECC? Contact Steve Aldredge, our director of music, to see how your talent might fit our needs.
Our choir rehearses on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. for special worship services and other major events. We sing in church for Easter, Pentecost, Reformation Sunday, and other church calendar events.
In addition to Sunday morning performances, the choir also hosts special annual events, such as Tenebrae and our Christmas Cantata. Check the church calendar for the most up-to-date information about these special performances.
Did you know ECC runs a children's choir? We believe that "music is not to be performed by experts while an audience watches: it is for all of us to do together." With this in mind, Joyful Noise seeks to teach kids how to worship with their whole being and encourage the rest of our church body to do the same.
Joyful Noise usually performs on the same Sundays that the ECC Choir sings during worship. The program includes a two-part children's chorus as well as a hand chime choir.
Children ages 4–12 are welcome to join us on Sunday evenings from 4–5:30 p.m. for rehearsal and Bible lessons. Contact Sarah Grogan for more information.
Why do we
Both our music director, Steve Aldredge, as well as members of ECC's congregation have written and arranged worship music we use regularly in our services. For sheet music or recordings of these songs, contact Steve Aldredge at the church office.
