“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all ye lands!”
No matter your age, interest or level of musical experience, The Little Chapel on the Boardwalk Presbyterian Church has an outlet for you to “make a joyful noise to the Lord.” By drawing upon all styles of sacred music and by offering a variety of music ensembles, all are welcomed and encouraged to express their faith through the wonderful gift of music that God has given his creatures. Discovering and using one’s gifts and talents is at the heart of all ministries here at LCOB and this includes the ministry of music as well.
Even if you only sing at worship, then you are already part of the Music Ministry at LCOB. YOU are the voice of the congregation and your participation in worship is a key element to excellence in worship. The voice of the congregation provides a foundation for a healthy musical atmosphere from which smaller, more focused ensembles grow.
At present, the LCOB Music Ministry includes a Children’s Choir, an adult Chancel Choir and a Handbell Choir. Singers who wish to participate on a limited basis are welcome to sing in the annual Christmas Cantata and Easter programs. Instrumentalists are always welcomed to participate when they feel comfortable and prepared.
We hope you will consider being part of the rewarding ministry of music here at the Little Chapel on the Boardwalk and grow in spirit mind body and voice through fellowship, music making and worship.
For the common things
of every day,
God gave men speech
in the common way.
And He gave to the poet
words to reveal
The deeper things men
think and feel.
But for heights and depths
no word could reach,
God gave men Music – the
soul’s own speech.
David Lee Heinzman, Director of Music Ministries
