Music Ministry

Adult Chancel Choir

Chancel Choir meets Wednesdays from 7:30 – 9:00 pm September through June. 

 

High school and above are welcome.  This group regularly sings at the 10:45 am service and other special services throughout the church year. 

 

This Chancel Choir also sings at occasional special events with other churches.  Anyone with a desire to share their voice in leading corporate worship is welcome and encouraged to join.  Meet in the Choir Room.

Handbell Choir

The Handbell Choir meets Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in Room 214 of the education wing – September through June.

 

We have a 4-octave set of Schulmerich bells and a 3-octave set of Malmark choir chimes.  Music-reading skill is very helpful, but you only need to be responsible for 2-4 notes, not the entire scale!

 

This group prepares special music to be performed at both Sunday morning services, usually every 4-6 weeks and at special services. 

Children's Choir

The Children’s Choir meets Wednesdays at 5:30 pm for a 45-minute rehearsal during school term.

 

Ages 5-12 are welcome.  This choir prepares an anthem to be sung at the 10:45 am service every 4-6 weeks, and also at special services throughout the school year.

 

Parents are encouraged to attend with their child so that they can help them learn the music; we meet in the Choir Room.

Interested in Choir?
Summer Choir

During the summer months, the Summer Choir meets on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am.

 

We do not wear robes or process, and sing a simple anthem during the 10:45 am worship service.

This is a great opportunity to try out the choir

prior to joining!
