Ministry of Worship through Music

Glorifying God through the offering of music is an important aspect of worship at the American Church.

choirUnder the direction of Fred Gramann, the church offers several ways to become involved in this particular ministry. There are vocal and handbell choirs for nearly all ages, where musicians can develop their skills and talents, enjoy fellowship and contribute to worship.

In addition to our multiple sets of handbells and a recently cleaned and renovated Beckerath pipe organ, the church has two grand pianos and a variety of percussion instruments.
