Sing to him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.
Psalm 33:3

Music Ministries

The Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is for any adult who loves to worship Jesus Christ through the gift of singing. The Chancel Choir participates at 10:50 am Traditional worship service and other services throughout the year. Typically, the Chancel Choir gives two concerts a year as well. This ensemble rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7 – 9 pm.



If you have never played the bells and would like to learn, Joyful Ringers is the place to start. Joyful Ringers is our Beginner Bells group. They meet to rehearse on Mondays at 5:45 pm and always love to have additional bell ringers. They generally go on hiatus for June, July, and August and resume regular rehearsals in September.


Contemporary Music Program

Our Contemporary Music Program is always looking to grow. Our team is comprised of nothing but church volunteers. If you have the gift of playing a string instrument, keyboards, or drums we would love for you to come join us. If you have the gift of singing or even want to “develop” the gift, we have a place on stage for you.

You can come take the journey with us as we rehearse every Wednesday at 6pm in the Church’s CAC (Christian Activities Center).
