Music

Chancel Choir is a vibrant group of vocal volunteers singing 4-part harmony who's desire is to sing and glorify God through a blended repetoire.  They participate at most morning worship services each Sunday starting September through mid-June.  Rehearsals are scheduled each Wed from 7:30 - 9:15 PM.  The choir will be performing an Advent/Christmas Cantata called "Images of Adoration" during the Dec 14th worship service.  

Joyful Noise Ringers is a team of handbell ringers (youth and adults) who play up to 4 octaves of bells.  Rehearsals are offered weekly from 6:15 - 7:30 PM on Wed to help mentor beginners and assist in the bell choir's ability to play one Sunday each month for morning worship.  Their performances in December include Dec 6th morning worship and the 7:00 PM Christmas Eve services.

Many Strings of Joy is a group of contemporary and folk singers playing guitar, keyboard and drums.  They rehearse weekly at 8 PM on Thursdays and welcome all ages including youth who's skill levels are ready for a band.   During the summer months, the rehearsal and performance schedule is communicated within the group to accommodate flexibility.   They will offer music during the Communion/Candlelight service on Christmas Eve at 11:00 PM and morning worship on January 4th.  

Instrumental Ensemble is an expanding group of musicians who play strings, woodwinds and brass instruments for special occasions throughout the year.  Rehearsals accommodate availability of all interested musicians.   Currently, Saturday morning rehearsals are scheduled to prepare the musicians for playing at morning worship on Dec 14th and the Christmas Eve service at 7:00 PM.

Singing Ringers/Children's Choir consists of 1st through 5th graders who are interested in singing, handchiming and solo opportunities to add to the Sunday morning worship experience.  As a way to maximize participation, this group meets before the Sunday school hour at 8:45 AM and rehearses for fifteen minutes.  This group will compliment the Advent/Christmas Cantata to be performed at the morning worship service on Dec 14th and sing at the family Christmas Eve service at 7:00 PM.
