Music Ministry

ADULT CHOIR  

The  Adult choir prepares and presents various styles of musical offerings to our  Lord every Sunday in our 9:00 am worship service September  through June.  Rehearsals are held Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in the choir room (North Hall).  Although our membership  requirement is ninth grade at a minimum, there is no upper age limit.  Our goals are to:

 

  • Provide quality musical  praise in support of the overall worship experience that brings our  congregation into a close meaningful relationship with our Lord
  • Provide an  opportunity for church members and friends to fellowship in times of  preparation and presentation of musical offerings
  • Take our God-given  gifts beyond the walls of our church into our community expressing our love of  Jesus Christ.


HANDBELL CHOIR  

Our  3 Octave Bell Choir consists of members (Grade 9 and up) who may have some  music knowledge and are able to count to the beat.  They perform the 3rd Sunday of  each month, in both worship services September through May.  Rehearsals are Monday evenings @ 7:00pm in  the Bell choir room (North Hall).
