Quality music is a vital part of every worship service because God is the audience and God deserves our very best! At Eastminster, our music is wide-ranging in style. In addition to singing traditional and contemporary hymns each week, our Adult or Handbell Choir offers an anthem that enhances the season of the year or the theme of the worship service. Heather Myer directs the handbell choir. Our Adult Choir has been on hiatus since the pandemic, but still meets occasionally and supports the service in singing.
Tamar Mikeladze provides beautiful sacred or classical music during the Prelude, Offertory and Postlude. Guest vocalists or instrumentalists are frequent additions especially at Christmas and Easter and during the summer.
In December, 1995, the firm of Lynn Dobson (Lake City, IA) installed a two-manual tracker pipe organ in the sanctuary. The organ is a regular part of our musical expressions in worship. You can read more about the organ here.
