Music is central to worship at Foothills. Depending on the Sunday you’ll hear pipe organ, piano, flute, handbells, choir, guest musicians and vocalists. If you enjoy singing or ringing handbells, Foothills has a choir to fit your schedule, background and interests. Email [email protected] for more info.
Chancel Choir sings a variety of music styles, including classics by Bach, Mozart, and Mendelssohn, gospel, bluegrass, and praise tunes, generally on the first and third Sundays of the month, September through July. Most singers have some musical experience, but not all – you don’t need to be able to read music to sing with us (but it helps). The Chancel Choir rehearses at 9:00 a.m. on the Sundays it sings.
Chamber Choir is a smaller, more advanced group that sings a variety of styles, with an emphasis on Renaissance polyphony. Singers should be able to read music reasonably well. The Chamber Choir sings on the fourth Sunday of the month, October through May, and rehearses the Wednesday before at 7:30 p.m.
Foothills’ handbell choir “Joyful Noise” meets each Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m. for rehearsal and music fellowship. The bells ring in worship service once a month, generally on the second Sunday, October through June. Enjoy the opportunity to learn from the very best under the guidance of Gretchen Rauch, our Handbell Choir Director.
Children’s & Youth Program
Every Sunday there’s a song to listen to, sing along with, and discuss, selected to match that week’s lesson.
*Currently on a break* Elementary Choir is for kids in kindergarten and up who enjoy singing. Music reading and singing skills are learned through a variety of songs, games, and exercises. Rehearsal and performance material is carefully selected to provide a well-rounded repertoire which promotes the Elementary Choir’s goals of learning, fun, and sharing the joy of singing together within our Christian community. The choir sings for the congregation three times a year, all decked out in beautiful blue robes.
Elementary Choir rehearses on Sundays from 11:15 to 11:45 a.m. in the Choir Room, September through May. No reading ability or prior musical experience is necessary to join. Tell your friends and neighbors: Elementary Choir is open to all! For information, please email our [email protected].
