Our music ministry offers many different types and styles of music for all ages and culture to praise God. At Community Congregational Church our music ministry performs several special events throughout the year including a variety show and Easter/Christmas Cantatas. The music ministry also includes our Chancel Choir directed by Lionel Jasmin. The Chancel Choir performs during the worship service and leads the congregation in song twice a week; Thursdays at 7:00PM in the Choir Room and Sundays at 11:30AM, also in the Choir Room. If you are interested in joining the Chancel Choir contact Lionel Jasmin.
