Music/Choir

Foundry is a singing church. Choral and instrumental music are central aspects of transcendent worship. The music ministries at Foundry span the breadth of musical styles. Worship includes traditional and contemporary music, from hymns to spirituals, anthems to oratorios, Bach to gospel, contemporary Christian music to Renaissance chant. We want to share the message of God’s love through the diversity of music, to connect with you, wherever you are.
