The Chancel Choir sings a variety of styles, including classics by Bach, Mozart and Mendelssohn, gospel, bluegrass, and praise tunes, generally on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. Most singers have some musical experience, but not all. You don’t need to be able to read music. Rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.
The more-relaxed Summer Choir is for people anyone who enjoys singing but especially those who are too busy to sing during the year. No mid-week rehearsals, we learn each Sunday’s anthem that morning. Easy music and no robes. Meets during the Summer in the Sanctuary at 9:15 a.m. Sunday morning.
Handbell Choir meets each Wednesday evening at 6 pm for rehearsal and music fellowship. The bells play in worship service once a month. Special concerts are periodically scheduled. Enjoy the opportunity to learn from the very best under the guidance of P.L. Grove, our Handbell Choir Director. She has been at the forefront of handbell artistry in America. Listen here to P.L. Grove’s handbell solo: Be Thou My Vision

Children’s Program Music is an important part of our school year program. Director Kristin Burns leads the kids in songs that complement the church school curriculum. The children sing for the congregation on Palm Sunday and in the Christmas pageant.
Elementary Choir is for kids in grades K through 5 who enjoy singing. Rehearsals are on Sundays from 11:15 to 11:45 AM in the Choir Room, from the last week of August through mid-May. Director Kristin Burns teaches beginning music reading and singing skills through a variety of songs, games, and exercises. No reading ability or prior musical experience is necessary to join. Each year Elementary Choir sings for the congregation three times and gives a short concert at a senior care facility, all decked out in their beautiful blue robes.
