Music, both vocal and instrumental, can be a powerful expression of worship.  Our Music Ministry is an exciting place to learn, lead, and experience worship through music.  We have a wide variety of service opportunities for vocalists, as well as instrumentalists.

Praise Band

The praise team worships through more contemporary music during the 9:45 & 11:00 a.m. blended services on Sunday mornings.  Drums, guitars, electric keyboards and more combine for an energetic take on Christian music. Voice talents lead the congregation in songs you might hear on Christian radio stations along with more contemporary settings of traditional favorites.  If you like to sing pop music or play an instrument found in your favorite band, come rock with us.  A try-out audition may be required, and basic music or chord reading skills may be necessary.

Rehearsals: Wednesday evenings, 8:00-9:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary

Chancel Choir

If you like to sing, this is the place for you.  The Chancel Choir sings a wide variety of musical styles.  From classical to contemporary, this ensemble sings multiple times per month and rehearses weekly.  You do not need to be able to read music, but a short vocal placement session with the director is required before attending your first rehearsal.

Rehearsals: Wednesday evenings, 6:30-7:45 p.m. in the Sanctuary starting again in the fall

Instrumentalists

If you play or have played an instrument in high school or college, you are invited to join us.  This group does all types of music including hymns, feature numbers, choral accompaniments, and even praise band accompaniments.  It is an incredible opportunity to brush up and sharpen your musical skills and bless the church.

Rehearsals:  Wednesday evenings, 6:00-6:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary starting again in the fall

Bell Choir

Prefer ringing to singing?  We have that covered, too!  This ensemble regularly performs once a month during Sunday services, and at other various special services throughout the year.  Reading music is a plus, but not necessarily required.

Rehearsals: Monday evenings, 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary starting again in the fall

Solo Music

Are you looking for a way to serve through music but do not want to commit to a weekly rehearsal?  Then perhaps you could prepare a solo offering and perform during a pre-arranged service time.  Talk with the musical director and collaborate for an upcoming service.
