In normal times, the King of Kings choir serves the congregation from August through early June with wide range of anthems of celebration/praise/prayer, from early choral works to spirituals and contemporary choruses. The choir also sings at some special events (weddings, funerals, etc.) and participates in various community music events. The children sing or play bells on special occasions. All voices and instruments are welcome in the King of Kings Choir.
The full King of Kings choir is currently inactive due to the pandemic. However, given that we love music so much, we have developed safe ways to continue to sing to the Lord until we can resume our normal practices.
King of Kings music during Covid-19
Our ELCA synod and our own Covid-19 task force have established procedures for staying safe during the pandemic.
Our online service, Be Ye Lifted! (Sundays at 9:30 a.m. on YouTube), includes videos of pre-pandemic full-choir hymns and anthems, and also includes new music videos recorded safely in a variety of ways.
The congregation is currently meeting in-person (masked and socially distanced) on the second Sunday of each month. The full choir isn’t currently singing, but we have live piano, guitar, and potentially other instruments in worship, along with a soloist or or small group of masked vocalists.
