Music Ministry

"Sing to the Lord a new song...with the sounding of the trumpet...with the harp and lyre...tambourine and dancing...strings and flute...Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." (Psalm 149 & 150)

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir provides music leadership for our 8:15 and 11:00 am worship services and is open to all adults.  Singing an eclectic blend of music from the master composers of the past and the choral innovators of today, there is something for everyone. Music for this group is generally accompanied by piano or organ, as well as strings, woodwinds and brass. In addition to leading worship on Sundays, they present music programs and lead worship for special occasions during the church year.  The Chancel Choir rehearses on Thursdays from 5:00 – 6:30 pm.

Laudate Ringers

Laudate Ringers

The Laudate Ringers are a group of fine handbell musicians who play on our church’s five octaves of Schulmerich handbells and three octaves of Malmark hand chimes. Practicing weekly from 3:30-5:00 pm on Thursdays, membership is open to those who have played handbells in the past and/or can read music well. The bells ring for worship services as well as special services and events including those in the community. 

Exsultate Sing!

Exsultate Sing! is our auditioned choral ensemble. Singing primarily during season, this group provides inspirational and dynamic music for our worship services as well as other special events in the life of the church.

Praise Team

Praise Team

The Praise Team brings the music to the 9:40 service. Singers and musicians lead worship with everything from hymns, to today’s Contemporary Christian Praise & Worship songs that you may hear on many Christian radio stations. Guitar, keyboards, bass guitar, drums, and percussion are the “sounds of the service”. Soloists are encouraged to lend their voices. Note reading is not a requirement. The Team practices Wednesdays at 6:00 - 8:00 PM. Contact Praise Team Director  for more information.

For more information about our music and worship arts opportunities, please contact our Director of Worship Arts.
