Sounds of LPC
Lakewood Presbyterian Church has a vibrant and varied music program lead by our Music Director Tony Testino. Our choirs and ensembles enhance our worship through a variety of musical styles to provide a "blended" worship experience.
This Sunday, August 20, 2017 the LPC Band will be singing the Offertory a beautiful song called The Wondrous Cross. Then,Sunday, August 27 our own Sara Mitchell will be providing music for both services at the offertory. We encourage you to join and worship with us.
Here’s The Big Scoop On Sundae Wednesday!
Whether you like to sing, ring, or simply chime in, Wednesday, August 30, is your chance to be part of the expanding LPC music program! We’re ending a hot summer day with a cool Ice Cream Social in Benz Hall at six o’clock and you’re invited to stop in for a sweet treat and an invitation to be part of the great LPC music program!
The choir loves to greet new singers. The Adult Handbell group is just the ticket for anyone who can read music. And if you don’t read music, our Heavenly Handchimers have a special place for you. Not only will you make new friends, but you will be part of a program of sacred classics, contemporary music, and our wonderful Christmas Cantata on December 17, complete with orchestra!
So don’t hide your talent under a bushel basket. Contact our cool music director, Tony Testino, by calling him at church (904-733-8055, Ext 19), or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
