The Music Ministry

The Music Ministry of Richardson Park Church is a lively, multi-generational activity that provides anyone the opportunity to praise God through song.  Our worship services include music from all eras and are dynamic in spirit and offering.  The opportunities for participation include the Chancel Choir, open to anyone, ages 14 and up, who love the Lord and singing and will commit to regular rehearsal and worship attendance. Our Chancel Bells provides an opportunity to learn and practice the art of English Handbell ringing.  Again, ages 14 and up are welcome to be a part of this worship ministry. Twice a year, we offer "special" musical opportunities by inviting those who cannot regularly attend rehearsals but want to be a part of the major feast-day music offerings at Christmas, Easter or other occasions that may occur.  These special times will offer Sunday afternoon rehearsals in addition to the regular rehearsal hours and all are welcome to participate.

Reheasal Times

 Chancel Bells rehearse on Thursday evenings, September – June, from 6:15 – 7:15 PM

 Chancel Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings, September – June, from 7:15 – 8:30 PM

 Special Rehearsal schedules are announced in advance for those participating.

Youth Music Ministry

For our younger children, every opportunity is taken to incorporate them into our Christmas and Easter music offerings through cooperation with our Christian Education leaders and Sunday school.  Whether it is a special play or an appearance in a larger production, our younger children are encouraged to find ways to share their talents through music and praise God through song.

The Organ at Richardson Park United Methodist Church

The organ at Richardson Park Church represents the leading technology in organ building today.  The console is a Rodgers Infinity 361, a three-manual and pedal console with 61 draw-knobs that allow the organist access to a vast number of outstanding samples of fine pipe ranks derived from pipe organ from around the world.  Additionally, 20 ranks of wind-blown pipes from the Cummings-Frye Organ of 1957 are interfaced with the digital voices, speaking from the rear gallery and new Solo/Echo chamber in the church.  The specification of the instrument follows:

The 361MV has 3 manuals and 61 main stops, plus 135 Voice Palette stops for a total of 196 available stops, equivalent to 300 pipe ranks. Library Access™ provides an additional 180 available stops and voices equivalent to 235 pipe ranks.
