The music department is one of the most important organizations in the Church. It is inspiration for many souls who have who have come to Christ. A well organized music department has been one of the church’s greatest assets and is greatly appreciated by is pastor and members. Rev. L.L Boswell organized the first choir. This choir sang anthems and spirituals. He served as the organist and the director. Metropolitan’s first pianist was Eva Moore. In 1932, Elder Boswell organized the Gospel Choir. After Bishop Taylor’s death in 1942, the two choirs were combined.
Instrumental in adding spirit and praise in our services, the various Metropolitan choirs have uplifted many hearts. Known for its choir decorum, the beautiful robes and the heavenly sound – the music department has been successful because of the discipline, sacrifice and hard work of its musician, directors, officers and choir members. We have been blessed with many talented individuals.
Commitment to ministering in song is the key to our success. The music department believes that souls are saved when we have a personal relationship with God. Choir members are encouraged to attend Bible Study and Sunday, tithe and to spend time developing a personal relationship with God. This allows the department to be used as instruments of praise and worship.
