Bell Choir – participates in worship monthly and at special services throughout the church year. Rehearsals are held most Thursday evenings at 6:15 from September – May.
The bell choir groups are ever evolving. The adult bell choir experience has been enhanced through occasional partnering with younger ringers. The youngest ringers began several years ago with tone chimes, and many have graduated to more complex offerings requiring note reading and the use of handbells as well as tone chimes. Opportunities for new groups and younger children are always available. Please let the church office know if you have an interest in finding a niche for yourself or a youngster in your life – We would be thrilled to include you!
Adult Choir – participates in weekly worship and special services from September – early June. Rehearsals are held most Thursday evenings at 7:30 from September – May.
The music selected tries to enhance the theme of the day. Depending on the required instrumentation and musical style, accompaniments can be with organ, piano, harpsichord, and instrumentalists that are selected from the very talented members of the congregation.
Children and Youth
Junior/ Senior High Youth wanting to participate in this choir rehearse most Sundays from September – May immediately after worship. Opportunity for group instrumental experiences is also a highlight for this group.
Children and Youth interested in participating in bell and chime choir groups are welcome at all times. Groups are flexible and organized according to age, availability, and prior music experience. Rehearsals generally are on Sunday mornings either before or after church school and worship.
Children in the Little Lambs and Kids’ Connection Church School classes participate in worship by singing at select times throughout the church year. Music is prepared as part of the church school experience.
