Music at Day’s Ferry Congregational Church
Music serves a vital role in our parish. At DFCC, our dedication to music is evident through our spirited music programs. With hymns, anthems, and prayer responses, with singing and instrumental music, music lifts our hearts and enriches our faith. We sing several hymns every Sunday, and have music played on two organs (one electronic, one reed) and a grand piano. Our music director is Dr. Paul Althouse.
The DFCC choir is a dedicated group of about a dozen singers who help lead worship through the gift of music. Our Choir is a cherished part of DFCC, both for the inspiring music they provide and for the opportunity it provides for fellowship and community. Under the direction of Paul Althouse, participation continues to grow in number and enthusiasm.
Choir season runs from Labor Day to early June. Rehearsals are Thursdays (5:30PM) and Sundays (9AM). We welcome singers of all ages and abilities. Most of all, the choir has a lot of fun singing together. Contact Dr. Paul Althouse, Music Director. Please join us!
