OUR MUSIC

We are blessed with many musical people in our congregation who share their talents in:

OUR JUNIOR CHOIR – school-age children participate in our worship service every Sunday and delight us at Christmas and in the spring with extra-special musical presentations.

Junior Choir practices are at the church on Thursdays from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

OUR SENIOR CHOIR is a wonderful group of lovely voices who lead us as we sing hymns each Sunday and inspire us with beautiful anthems as well. Extra-special music is also shared at Christmas and Easter and on other special Sundays.

The Senior Choir practices at the church on Thursdays from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. from September to June. New voices are most welcome!

OUR BELL CHOIR was formed in September 2005. We have a beautiful solid brass 3-octave set of hand bells. Our bells are quiet for the time-being as we settle in with our new Music Director and get to know each other.
