Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.— Psalm 100:1
Calvary is home to a diverse group of talented musicians who serve faithfully in our music ministry as we seek the Lord and praise Him with song.
From the organ chords and songs of the Choir during the traditional service, to the melodies of our Worship Team during the contemporary service, Calvary’s sanctuary rings with music and praise on Sunday mornings. Other opportunities include the Celebration Bells hand bell choir and youth ACTS band.
The choir practices on Wednesday evenings from 7:15 to 8:45 pm. Contact Lori Bourret in the church office if you have questions about Calvary’s music ministries!
Whatever your age, level of experience or stylistic preference, there is a place for YOU in the music ministry at Calvary.

“Mary, Did You Know that the child that you’ve delivered will soon deliver you?”
This is how “Mary Did You Know” by Mark Lowry and Buddy Green came to be written. It is from Stories Behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmas by Ace Collins. In 1984 Mark was asked by his pastor in Houston, Texas to write musical bridges between carols for the Christmas tree choir presentation. He pondered what it would have been like to interview Mary on her thoughts about being Jesus’ mother. He knew his words needed to become a song. Six years later while in the Gaither Vocal Band, Mark asked fellow band member, Buddy Green to add beautiful music to his God-inspired words and make it a profitable success. It was first sung by Michael English, then by Kathy Mattea, Natalie Cole, other soloists and church choirs.
This song will be sung by our church choir on Christmas Eve. Wouldn’t you like to sing it with us? The rehearsal of Advent and Christmas music is on Wednesdays at 7:15 in the choir room. Sing for all or part of the Advent/Christmas season!
