Music

Music Section of the Website

The summer is over and it is time to open those sleeping music doors! Whether you are new to the church or have been here a while and want to join in the music ministry at Faith ‘Viera’ you are welcome to find a group that perks your interest.

“Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul;

it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.”-Martin Luther

Chancel Choir

This wonderful group of harmonized singers meets Wednesdays at 7pm in the Music Room starting August 23rd. Their mission is to enhance worship by bringing beautiful anthems to God. If you have sung in a choir before or have participated in harmonized musical groups, you are encouraged to check this group out. I am sure you will smile at least once…or twice…or maybe even three times. Who knows!

Gospel Singers

This fun group of singers meet Wednesdays at 1pm starting August 23rd to sing those ‘old time’ gospel songs. Their mission is to bring gospel music to the ears of the community. They visit Town Square, a facility for assisted living, and monthly appearances in a Sunday worship service. No choir experience is necessary. So, if singing for the community gospel music with a bunch of delightful people perks your ear, you are welcome to join.

Faith Singers

If you are a male and like to sing 4-part male harmony then you are encouraged to join this wonderful group! They provide exciting preludes and meditative anthems for worship. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Alan Koch, the group’s director, at 321-848- 3072.

Handbells

Our energetic advanced handbell choir meet Tuesdays at 7pm starting August 22nd in the Sanctuary to practice both meditative and exciting handbell music. Their mission is to enhance the worship service by bringing beautiful melodies and sounds to God. If you have played in a handbell choir previously and are interested in joining this group please contact Rachael Augustine at 321-636-5504 or raugustine@faithviera.org.

New! Children’s Choir

I am happy to announce the start of a fall children’s choir. Children grades 1-6 are welcome to come and sing.

If you have an instrument you would like to play in church or have a song you might want to sing, feel free to contact Rachael Augustine at 321-636-5504 or raugustine@faithviera.org.
