Adult Music Ministry

The Chancel Choir is made up of adults age 16 and above who seek to glorify God through music, in worship, and in supporting, caring and praying for one another in Christian love. This choir serves as the principal choir for the 11:00 am worship service. The Chancel Choir rehearses each Wednesday from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm in the choir room B203. Sunday morning rehearsals begin at 10:35 am prior to the worship service. The Chancel Choir provides music each Sunday and presents special musical worship services at Christmas and Easter.

No audition is necessary. You do not need to be a trained musician to sing in the Chancel Choir, only a love for music and singing. Persons who want to share their faith by singing and who will commit to regular attendance to Wednesday rehearsal and Sunday worship are always welcome.

What are rehearsals like? We practice music for upcoming worship services and special events in an atmosphere that is fun and laid back. We allow time for announcements and share prayer concerns. Each rehearsal ends with a choir member led devotional and prayer.

Child care is available if requested in advance.

  

The Worship Choir is made up of adults age 16 and above who seek to glorify God through music. This choir serves as the principal choir for the 8:30 am worship service. Worship Choir rehearsals are on Sunday mornings at 8:00 am. This choir sings arrangements of familiar hymns and other music that is easy to learn quickly. No musical training required only a love of music.

  

A Seasonal Choir is available for those who love to sing in a choir but need a short term commitment have three opportunities to participate: Christmas, Easter and Summer.

Chancel Bells are open to adults ages 16 and up and to youth with permission. Some ability to read music and faithful, regular attendance is necessary to participate in this group.
