We, as human beings, were created to worship and praise our God. Music is one of those gifts God has given to us that we can give back to Him. With gratefulness and joy we lift our songs and voices to our Lord Jesus Christ. For many, music lifts their spirits and souls to express their love and commitment to serving our God and the community at large. It allows us to express our emotions whether it is jubilant rejoicing or mournful sadness. The listener and performer are drawn closer to God’s presence. To that end, the music program at Cedar Creek UMC encourages believers to utilize their gifts in music to honor and serve the Lord.
As presenters of music, whether a choir, instrumentalist, or soloist, we are worship leaders. The music presented at CCUMC is God-centered, biblical, expressive of our love and need for Christ, meaningful, and delivered to the best of our ability.
The Music Department of Cedar Creek UMC enables musicians of all types to express their faith through God’s gift of music. From choral anthems to the latest contemporary Christian music, CCUMC's Music Department provides many diverse and excellent ways of praising God. The Music Department is made up of vocal and instrumental groups of all ages for children, youth and adults. CCUMC is blessed with many talented musicians as well as an outstanding staff of musicians who lead and direct our various musical groups. The staff is committed to serving Christ by producing music at a highest level of excellence.
We welcome those interested in becoming a part of this great organization and look forward to getting to know you and sharing in the gift of music in worship.
A list of the various musical ministries follows:
The Burning Hearts
The Burning Hearts performs on Sunday's at the 9:00am Praise Service.
Choir Director, Barbara Zech leads the Sanctuary Choir, which is the main adult choir for CCUMC's music program. They sing for the 11:15 AM Traditional Worship service regularly. The choir sings traditional as well as contemporary anthems. During Advent and Lent the Sanctuary Choir prepares special music programs appropriate for the church year. Membership is open to all who have an interest in singing great church music and who have the desire to serve Christ to the best of their musical abilities.
Do You Like to Sing?: Come join us in making a joyful noise until the Lord! We have rehearsals every Wednesday at 6:30pm and sing every Sunday at the 11:15 worship service. Wednesday at the Well meals are served prior to practice. If you have any questions, contact Barb Zech or one of the choir members.
Christmas Cantata (a message from Barb Zech) - Each year we perform a Christmas Cantata. Have you ever wanted to sing with the choir JUST for the cantata? Now is your chance. Keep tuned for rehearsal information and performance schedule. I hope to see many folks from congregation land travel to choir land for this wonderful musical opportunity. It will take your Advent season to a new level as you pull love for God from your body, mind and spirit through participation in this annual event.
