Worship is at the heart of what we do as a Christian community. At Morningside, our music is integrated with the spoken word to enhance our worship experience. Drawing from a rich variety of musical sources, including classical, chant, gospel, and musical theater, we strive for traditional worship that is transcendent, not boring.
Ongoing musical elements at Morningside include our Chancel Choir, Children's Choirs and the Handbell Choir. You can click on this link and other links you find there to sample our musical offerings, and be sure to check for information about upcoming special musical events.
Since its organization as a congregation in 1925, music has always been a prominent part of worship at Morningside. A pipe organ, however, was not a resource until the completion of our current building in 1949. A victim of severe water damage over the past 50 years, Morningside’s magnificent Wicks pipe organ installed in 1956 has undergone complete rebuilding and modernizing.
On this page you can find a history of the rebuilt instrument — henceforth known as the Wicks-Coulter organ for the improvements installed by Atlanta organbuilder Robert I. Coulter — from its initial installation in 1949 to its current renovated and restored condition, a description of the project undertaken by Coulter-Organbuilders, and a listing of the specifications for the Wicks-Coulter organ as it now exists.
