Music Ministry

Music Ministry

The Music Ministry at Asbury includes an Adult Choir, Children’s Choir, and Handbell Choir.  All three ensembles practice on Wednesday evenings and perform during Sunday worship and for special events from August through May.  Vocal and instrumental soloists or small groups are always welcome.  

Contact Sarah Shoremount at music@asburyop.com if you are interested in joining an ensemble or preparing special music for worship.

Excerpts from Wesley’s Directions for Singing:

III. Sing All. Let not a slight degree of weakness or weariness hinder you. If it is a cross to you, take it up and you will find a blessing.

IV. Sing lustily and with good courage. Beware of singing as if you were half dead, or half asleep; but lift up your voice with strength.

VII. Above all sing spiritually. Have an eye to God in every word you sing. Aim at pleasing him more than yourself, or any other creature.
