Worshiping through Music
Music is a gift from God given by the Creator to bring God praise.
In worship, music brings our individual thoughts and desires together so that we might worship God in Spirit and in truth.
THE CHANCEL CHOIR:
Our Choir rehearses every Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m.
OUR PRAISE BAND:

OUR VILLAGE VOICES...Where God's word is spread through song and music:
The children's choir at Village Presbyterian Church is for children 4 years of age and up, including
middle and high school to enrich our worship services at times throughout the year.

instrumental soloists during worship.
OUR BRASS BAND:
A new addition to Village this 5 piece ensemble is a big hit. The group adds a magnificent quality to special worship hymns.
OUR HEISSLER ORGAN (OPUS 442)
Our pipe organ is a 21 stop / 23 rank tracker (mechanical action) organ built in 1986 by the Franz
Heissler Organ Company of Germany. The organ has 1,156 pipes ranging in size from 10 feet to
smaller than a pencil. The metal pipes are made of a tin and lead combination while the wooden
ones are made of Swedish pine. The custom designed case is built of solid American white oak.
When a key is pressed, the movement is conveyed via tracker levers (thin strips of wood under
tension) directly to a pallet valve that admits air to the appropriate pipe. This allows the organist
to change the startup sound or "chiff" depending on how the key is struck. In addition, there are
fifty-six Spanish Trompettes mounted horizontally in the center of the case.
Come, let us "Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord"
