Music Ministry



Music Ministries at Corinth



Corinth Chancel Choir is preparing music for two very special services during Holy Week on Holy Thursday, March 29 and Good Friday, March 30. The anthem, “Gathered in the Upper Room” portrays through music and visuals, the disciples with Jesus during the Last Supper. On Good Friday, the cantata “Hallelujah! What a Savior!” will be sung as some of the most beautiful and tender music and narration describe the last days of the crucifixion of Jesus, our Lord.  From the familiar hymn, "Fairest Lord Jesus" to the powerful “Man of Sorrows” and the sublime beauty of “Carry Him Gently” from Celebrate Life, the story of Jesus and his last physical days on earth is told.  Through visuals, narration, music and short, solemn episodic dramatic scenes—all will tell how people felt as they looked upon Jesus that day he was crucified. Come and be a witness to the powerful Holy Week story of God’s supreme love in anticipation of a Community Sunrise Service at Sandston Baptist and Holy Easter services here at Corinth. Alleluia!


The children continue to learn new music in preparation for sharing God’s love in message and song The beautiful singing of our children is a wondrous blessing for us all.


Please contact me if there is an interest in playing handbells during the spring/summer. Handbell ringers make a beautiful contribution to the worship service. About eight – ten ringers are needed and this activity would be tailored to youth and adults.


On Sunday, March 11, after the 11:00 a.m. Worship Service, youth and adults are invited to participate in another Ukulele Session, as players strum both sacred and popular/folk songs to learn simple to more advanced chords. String players are welcome to join in!
