Presbyterian Church Music Ministry

Music plays a key role at the Presbyterian Church of Traverse City, Northern Michigan

There are many ways to use God’s great gift of music to help yourself and others worship God. We offer a diverse range of musical opportunities to let your light shine.

Want to get involved with music at the Presbyterian Church in Traverse City?  If you are an instrumentalist (youth or adult) interested in sharing your musical talents with us during worship, simply  contact our Director of Music, Angela Wiliford.

She is always looking for ways to incorporate the musical gifts of the congregation. There are opportunities for solos, duets, trios, even small ensembles. Let us know your idea!

Our neXus Service is Full of Music

 The music at neXus is eclectic, the topics diverse, the atmosphere relaxed, and the energy inspiring. Weekly messages include time for feedback and questions. Seriously. We believe God inspires each of us and together we learn more. Communion is at the heart of neXus worship and we celebrate it together every Sunday.

 Music at neXus is eclectic. Really! From the U2charist to special blues-based services, John Mayer to Johann Sebastian Bach, and everything in between, music moves us to new ways of thinking. The neXus band can breathe new life into old, cherished hymns and glean fresh insight from songs we thought had no meaning…and we discover how God speaks to us in more ways than one.
