Love God, Love others, Love the world.

Music

Our music ministry is open to all ages beginning with three year olds through adults.  We have preschool and graded choirs which meet each Wednesday afternoon.  Our adult choirs meet on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.  Our handbell choir meets each Wednesday evening, and our various vocal and instrumental ensembles meet on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons.  In addition to our choirs, vocal ensembles, and instrumental ensembles, we also offer various soloists a chance to receive private  instruction and a variety of times they may share special music with our congregation.

One of the great joys we have each year is seeing the great number of volunteer drivers, workers, helpers, assistant directors, and directors who willingly give their time to work in our afterschool pick-up and our preschool and graded choir ministry. There is always room for one more driver, helper, worker, assistant director, or director!  Our adults assure the effectiveness of our music ministry and without them we could not offer the many social, musical, and spiritual experiences that combine to guarantee our children a rewarding choir experience.

Here is our schedule; if you should want to volunteer for any of our needs we would be so happy to include you in our “Choir Family”:
