Over 50 members strong, the Chancel Choir provides musical leadership every Sunday. It is open to all singers regardless of experience or training. Music reading is not a requirement and no audition is necessary. The choir also presents special seasonal concerts and features a wide variety of musical styles and modes. Recordings of upcoming pieces are typically available to assist with learning.

 

“Chancel Choir is such a good place to fellowship, make friends, sing a wonderful variety of music, and learn so much about singing God’s praises from the best teacher I’ve known.” – Choir member

 

Praise Team Vocalists

Rehearsals - Mondays at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 7:00 a.m.

 

A rotating team of vocalists are assigned to weekly worship services. The team’s purpose is to help our congregation worship. Reading music is not a requirement, however singers must be able to hold their own part and learn harmony/memorize. While there are no formal auditions, an interview and orientation period are typical. Participation open to adults and youth (middle school and older)

 

“Praise team is like a family that sings, prays and plays together. We take turns singing on Sunday so it is not a weekly commitment, although we tend to all make it to weekly rehearsals regardless.” - Praise Team member

 

Praise Band

Rehearsals - Mondays at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 7:00 a.m.

Printed music and/or chord charts are provided for all of the songs in our library. Instrumentalists must be proficient in playing in multiple styles. Students are welcome, but should be at an advanced level of playing (late middle school/early high school). In lieu of formal auditions, we are open to new people sitting in with the band during which time we can determine if there is a good fit.

 

“Praise Band….all volunteers with professional quality sound, able to master any style of music and help each other grow in music and faith.” - Praise Band member

 

JuBELLation

Rehearsals - Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m.

 

bells.jpgParticipation in a bell choir is fun! It encourages teamwork, self-control, dependability, and self-confidence. Bell-ringing fosters social interaction, creative problem solving, artistic expression, and acts as a trainer of coordination and motion skills. Reading music is helpful, but counting accurately, and a sense of rhythm is more important.

 

The group performs periodically during Sunday services, in the community, and attends bell festivals.

 

Open and welcome to all who are eager and ready to learn.

 

Contact Lynne Homan at  if you are intersted in joining or getting more information.
