Music at United Parish 2023-2024

Music at United Parish 2023-2024 Music is one of the United Parish’s core values. We believe that everyone has musical ability, and that music is one of God’s greatest gifts to us as human beings. Live music making (singing in a choir, singing in the congregation, playing handbells, drumming…) has been shown to actually heal the body and the mind, and we know that music can move and inspire us when words fail. Music binds us with our fellow humans like nothing else, and can even be an act of justice. In the words of St. Augustine “She who sings, prays twice.” There are many ways to participate in music here at the United Parish – including just coming to worship and singing with your fellow congregants – but if you are interested in doing more, please read on!

There’s a lot going on in music at United Parish this fall! If you are interested in participating, please reach out to Minister of Music Susan DeSelms at
