God has blessed our church with many talented musicians and vocalists. We believe that God has blessed us with music and it should be used to honor and glorify Him. Our church currently has three avenues to accomplish this worship: church choir, special music, and instrumentals. 





In our church, we desire to have a choir sing in both the 8:30 and 11:00 am Sunday services. Typically they sing congregational songs from our choir loft and offer one choral anthem during each service. More specifically, the 8:30 Sanctuary choir regularly meets on Sunday mornings at 8:00 am for choir practice, while the 11:00 Chancel Choir meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm for practice.  



Rehearses Monday nights at 5 pm, plays periodically in worship and in seasonal musicals. This musical offering complements the worship service with a spirit of praise, contemplation, or communion. One unique aspect of handbell ringing is that players are solely responsible for their notes. Each ringer plays their part while at the same time playing as part of a unified ensemble, much like playing a position on a sports team. We strive for skillful excellence during weekly rehearsals in order to give our best to glorify God in worship.


Instruments are important in our worship service. In addition to a piano and an organ, God has also provided our church with many capable musicians who form our small orchestra. Musicians often enjoy the opportunity not only to play during our congregational singing, but also to play during offertories and seasonal musicals.

Rehearsals are every Wednesday night at 6:00 pm



The fall season will soon be upon us, and the choir will be getting into full swing with plenty of exciting music planned. Rehearsals are on Sunday mornings at 8am in the choir room fo the 8:30 service and on Wednesday evenings at 7pm in the choir room for the 11:00 service. Our flexible schedule allows singers to be a part of the choir even if they cannot attend every weekly rehearsal!
