Our Chancel Choir provides music for our 11:00 service and they rehearse on Wednesdays at 7:00 in our choir room. We enjoy singing a variety of anthems in contrasting styles and difficulty levels. We usually sing a cantata during the Advent/Christmas season and we have also sung for other church events including mission fundraisers. The choir typically takes a break from rehearsals in July. There is no audition or special requirement in order to join other than having a love for singing. We welcome anyone who wants to use their singing voice to honor our God!
Our handbell choir meets on Wednesdays at 6:15 before the chancel choir. We have our own bell room with plenty of space. We are privileged to have four full octaves of bells as well as three octaves of hand chimes. Our choir typically plays in worship 4-6 Sundays a year at both services. We usually play around homecoming, Fall/Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and sometime in spring. Our group has also provided music for our Cheergivers Lunch, a lunch during Advent given for our shut-ins. While some members of our choir know how to read music, others do not. Therefore, we are happy to accept members at any skill level, including beginners. In handbells, we all work as a team and help each other.
Children’s Music Ministry
Our newly revamped children’s Sunday school program starts at 9:45, and includes splitting the Sunday school lesson into different activities. The first activity of the morning is music. During our music lesson, the children have done a wide variety of activities including singing, doing motions with songs, playing music-related games, playing handbells, and learning about different musical concepts. We have a fun assortment of small percussion instruments as well as three one-octave sets of multi-colored handbells. We have used the handbells to accompany hymns during worship and our children have also helped lead songs in worship by doing motions while singing along. Our Sunday school time provides a fun environment where our children can learn about music as well as learning the value of leadership in the church.
