Music

FirstPresbyterianChoir.jpgPatsy Ihrke, our music director, provides the weekly service music and directs the Cornerstone (adult) and Good News Ringers (hand bell) choirs.  All the service music and anthems performed offer a sampling of all types of religious music.  Cornerstone rehearses Sunday Mornings at 9:30 AM.  Good News Ringers rehearse at 7 PM on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday's of each month. All rehearsals are held in the Music Room on the upper level.

Most of our choir members are not trained musicians so we possess different levels of musical knowledge.  The one thing we truly have in common is our love of Christ.  It is Patsy’s belief that no matter how well we perform, the most important thing is to sing and play from our heart because that is what makes the true music to God’s ears.  And THAT is what makes the music at 1st Presbyterian Church of Itasca so special!
