Music Ministry

"To the Master of music and loveliness: Praise, Power, Dominion Forever!" - Praise by Aidan Clarke

The Sanctuary Choir
Comprised of volunteer and paid choristers, this outstanding ensemble sings every Sunday at the 10:30 a.m. service of worship, September through May.
The members of the Sanctuary Choir minister by leading congregational song and preparing and singing anthems that are liturgically appropriate for every service. The choir and congregation embrace the sacred musical traditions of Western Europe, America, South Africa, Latin America and others.


The Spire Series is committed to presenting both musical and visual artists and fostering community, while celebrating the unique space at First & Franklin Presbyterian Church. Receptions are an integral part of the programs, where the audience and artists meet and are treated as our honored guests.
