Make A Joyful Noise!
Music has always played an important role in worship at our church. Holiday services are made joyful by the performances of combined choir, organ, hand bells and instruments.
The "Gallery Singers," our adult choir, welcomes all singers, high school age to ?. All are invited to visit the choir any time. You may show up on a Wednesday, and sing on Sunday, as simple as that!
"Kids Singing and Ringing" is a group where children can "ring and sing and try all sorts of things" musical. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet other church kids while ringing God’s praises. This musical group is under the direction of Benita Rose.
The church owns a 5 octave set of English-style hand-bells. The Celebration Ringers is our adult handbell choir and welcomes ringers from high school age and up.
