Music has been and continues to be a stable foundation of our life together at Mayflower.
We have enjoyed consistent vibrancy, quality, depth of theology and intergenerational participation throughout the many years. Our love for music is felt and experienced in our singing of congregational hymns, choir anthems, organ voluntaries and more. Our traditional Cantata Sunday offers an opportunity to craft a December worship service around a major work, including choir, soloists and instrumentalists from the Grand Rapids Symphony. Our Children’s Musical offers an opportunity to nurture our young talent and be led by our younger members in worship. Mayflower’s catalog of music spans the centuries from medieval chant and Renaissance polyphony to the music of today’s composers. Organist, choirs, and soloists provide musical leadership during worship on Sunday mornings.
We find occasions to bring all our choirs together and even to invite “all comers”. We strive to integrate music into the fabric of our life together, and reach beyond our walls with free live concerts and a YouTube channel. Our choirs function as small groups, caring for and supporting each other.
We welcome and invite you to become a part of our music ministries. There’s a place for you, regardless of age and ability.
