"Praise the Lord. Sing to the Lord a new song." - Psalm 149:1


Our music program is always looking for men and women, boys and girls who would love to share their musical talents.

The music ministry at Atkinson Congregational Church, UCC is a very important part of our worship. It calms us and it helps us to feel comfort. It brings joy to our spirits and it can give us great inspiration. Most importantly, it helps us feel closer to God. Atkinson has a wealth of talented musicians who enjoy different kinds of music. Different kinds of music enhance and stimulate our senses and this can provide us with a wonderful worship experience.
