The music ministry at Lincoln Park Church welcomes musicians of all levels of ability, from novice to accomplished musician. Our only desire is to praise and honor God through music, and thus, enhance our worship services for everyone. When you sit in quiet and meditate, listen if God is calling you to share in this ministry. God our Father and we, the church musicians, invite you to join us as we celebrate God through music. Pray, listen and then accept the call. Please contact music director Irina Shmeleva at the church at 610-777-1422, Ext.26.
“Beautiful music can calm the agitation of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.”
— Martin Luther
Leads worship at the Contemporary Service, 9 AM every Sunday. Weekly rehearsals are at 7:00 pm on Thursdays. Instruments, voices, and tech team members are needed, and you don’t have to be a professional musician; you just need a desire and commitment to serve God and our congregation in this way. Contact Worship Leader Mark Villecco or Music Director Irina Shmeleva.
Music from the Baroque to Contemporary and every musical period in between is the repertoire of the Chancel Choir. A small, but polished group of singers meets every Wednesday from September–June at 7:30 PM. The members total 13 on an ordinary Sunday, but jump to 17 or more on major concert Sundays which include the Christmas Cantata in December and Music Sunday in June.
Rehearsal evenings are filled with laughter, mistakes, and a simple joy of being together. Psalm 96 says, “Sing a new song unto the Lord.” It doesn’t say you have to be a trained vocalist; it just says sing to the Lord. And that’s what this choir does. We praise God through music, we serve God by using our voices for our church, and we love God by loving each other. To paraphrase a song title, “How can we keep from singing?”
“Praise Him with trumpet sound; praise Him with harp and lyre” (Psalm 150), and our church adds “praise Him with bells and chimes.” Five octaves of Malmark bells and three octaves of chimes are rung with precision (or at least that is the goal) by 10–12 ringers ranging from the very experienced to the novice.
Often accompanying the Chancel Choir on Sundays, this group rehearses Wednesdays from September–June at 6:30. Not everyone has a background in music, but everyone has a desire to celebrate the goodness of God through music.
Our Children’s Choir of cherubs ages 2 through 3rd Grade rehearses Tuesday evenings at 6 pm and performs at the 9 am and 11 am worship services several times throughout the year.
