FCC’s Vision of Sacred Music

The Music Ministry at FCC has several roles.  Sacred music serves to support, underscore, and provide additional meaning and context to the liturgy, lectionary, teaching, and preaching experienced in worship.   Sacred music also offers unique opportunities to offer expressions of praise and worship to our Creator and Redeemer.  Music at FCC supports and enhances community worship through congregational song, choral anthems, and vocal and instrumental solos and ensembles.

Experiencing Sacred Music at FCC

Sacred music is a powerful medium and reaches us on many levels:  spiritually, intellectually, psychologically, emotionally, and physically.  At its best, sacred music serves as the point of convergence for all of these aspects of the human experience.

Great sacred music is much more than a good performance.  While FCC has a rich history of excellence in sacred music, musical excellence alone is not the goal.  Rather, sacred music is one approach of many to experience and worship the Divine in community.

Throughout the course of the year, many people participate in the Music Ministry at FCC, including children and youth, amateurs, and professionals.  No talent is too small or too great.  In each musical offering, we strive to connect the musician with the Divine, connect the musician with fellow worshipers, and in so doing, connect worshipers with one another and with the Divine.

As progressive Christians, we strive to incorporate many styles of music from many traditions to reflect our diversity, to proclaim our identity, and to celebrate the depth and breadth of God’s love for all humankind.
