Worship and Music

I need to worship because without it I lose a sense of wonder and gratitude and plod through life with blinders on.

Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!

Music has a vital role at Bluff Park United Church as we engage people to worship God. We are dedicated to enabling everyone to experience the presence and power of God Our Father through congregational singing, choral singing in the Sanctuary Choir, Men’s Choir, Women’s Choir, small ensembles, Contemporary Worship Band, Handbells and in our Children’s Music programs. We have a strong desire to glorify God through music in all of our gatherings and programs. Music speaks to our soul and can imprint the scriptures and truth on our hearts. It comforts us when we need it most, it can remind us of how much God loves us and His gift to us in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

We strive to embody the gospel of Jesus Christ and His mission by reaching out to each other, the community, and the world; nurturing one another in the life of the church as we proclaim the gospel through music.

Sanctuary Choir

The Sanctuary Choir at Bluff Park is a non-auditioned group of dedicated singers who meet for rehearsal on Wednesday evenings (typically August through June) from 6:30pm-8:00pm. The choir is comprised of people of all musical abilities, which is made up of singers from all walks of life and professions, from professional musicians to those that have done very little to no singing. The Sanctuary Choir is a supportive fellowship with numerous opportunities to deepening ones faith, friendships, and caring for one another, in addition to leading in Worship each Sunday morning for our 10:00 Traditional Worship Service. The Sanctuary choir continues the rich heritage of “excellence” in its singing and in the outstanding literature it sings. The choir continues to be an important part of our weekly worship service as we sing with our magnificent organ. The choir presents numerous special programs throughout the church year and often works with professional instrumentalists or even a full professional orchestra.Visitors are always welcome to come and experience wonderful fellowship Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in the Choir Room!

Adult Handbell Choir

Our Adult Handbells, a 3-5 octave handbell ensemble for Senior High Youth and Adults (even the young at heart) lead in our 10:00 a.m. Traditional Service once a month, September - May. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings 6-7 p.m. in the Handbell Room. Ringing experience and the ability to read music and rhythms is very important, but don’t let that stop you from checking us out. A Beginning Handbell Class preparing you to ring with the Adult Handbells can be arranged and we can help you learn the necessary tools to become an active member of the handbell choir.
