The Chancel Choir serves 10:30 worship in their music ministry by providing leadership in hymn singing, prayer responses, and an anthem, which enhances the worship theme of the day.  They also present an annual Choir Candlelight Service at 4:00 in the afternoon on the 3rd Sunday of December.

The Chancel Choir is a supportive community that welcomes new members. Rehearsal is on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 PM in the choir loft from September through May. 

Our style of music varies from Bach to Gospel ~ something for everyone. 



The Handbell Choir was organized by Lois Haley in 1979.   The 5-octave Schulmerich handbell set and 3-octave Schulmerich chime set were purchased throughout the years with Memorial funds. 

Rehearsal is on Thursday from 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM in the choir room from September through May to prepare music to share in the 10:30 AM worship service.

We are always  seeking more members.  The ability to read music is a requirement for membership.  If you are interested, contact the church office.
