Music Ministry Welcomes You!
Chancel Choir: High School - Adult
This choir is the main choir for the 10:00 AM service on Sundays. This group sings a mixture of traditional, contemporary, and ethnic music. The Chancel Choir also leads worship for all of our special services during Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter. (If you can’t make an every Sunday commitment, please join us during the holiday seasons for our Christmas and Easter Choirs). Weekly rehearsals are spent reviewing vocal technique, learning new music, and practicing hymns and service music. It is not necessary to be able to read music.

Our hand bell choir rehearses weekly and plays at the 10:00 AM service about 6 times a year. The hand bells are also part of special holiday services and ring at the Sunday 8:00 AM service 2-3 times a year. This year we will be working on music reading skills, hand bell techniques, and some exciting new music.
Church School Choristers
Church School Choristers is a new group which was formed in the Spring of 2016. This group of Church School children meets for 20 minutes following the 10am worship service for a few weeks before their scheduled Sunday to sing at the 10am worship service. They will be singing approximately 4-6 times throughout the school year. Ms. Joanne and Mrs. Santoro lead this group.
Musicians and Vocalists:
Throughout the year there are many opportunities for instrumentalists, soloists, and groups to share their talents as an offering to the Lord. Sometimes an instrumentalist is asked to accompany one of our choirs. At other times, we have had people play unaccompanied or with the piano or organ accompaniment. Soloists can sing as part of a choir piece, as part of the service music, as an offertory anthem, or as a cantor at the 8:00 am service. Please contact our music director if you would like to contribute your talents!
We are also in need of people to play the Ella S. Buckley Memorial Carillon. Lessons are provided to children and adults by Christel Davis. Some basic music reading skills are needed. firstname.lastname@example.org
