Music

Music is an important and integral part of our worship service and special events at UCSV. We have many opportunities for people to be involved including two choirs and occasions for solo or group voice and instrumental songs as well. All are welcomed to share their talents!


Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is a volunteer choir made up of friends and members of the church directed by Melissa Manning and assisted by Dave Adams. We provide an anthem every Sunday for the enhancement of the service. We also provide leadership in the singing of the Sunday hymns.

Members do not have to be able to read music though that is an asset. It’s just the joy of singing in a choir and making harmony that brings us together. We sing all kinds of music – folk, contemporary, classical and sometimes pop and gospel.

Chancel Choir rehearses every Sunday prior to the church service at 9:15 AM and after service at 11:30 AM for about an hour. All are welcomed to join the choir.


United Sounds of Praise Gospel Choir

Gospel ChoirUnited Sounds of Praise is a volunteer gospel choir made up of members and friends of the church led by director Justin Footman and drummer Garland Townsend.

Currently the choir sings two Sundays a month during church service and on special occasions. They have a concert once a year. The multi-cultural choir’s goal is to touch all and minister to those in the congregation with our lively music, our words and our praises to the Lord.

United Sounds of Praise rehearses one night each week at the church, currently Thursday at 7:30 PM. All are welcomed to participate.
