Music

A Place for Everyone

Do you sing or play an instrument?  We welcome you to join us!  All of our choirs and ensembles begin regular schedules in September. We have choirs for all ages of singers.  All instrumentalists are welcome to play with the orchestra, guitarists and drummers are needed to play with the Praise Band, and handbell ringers are always needed for the Notabells.

 

Adult Choirs

The Praise Team leads congregational singing during the 9:30 AM Modern Worship Service on Sunday mornings. Rehearsals are held each Wednesday from 5:30 – 7:30pm.

Praise Band Musicians and Vocalists/Worship Leaders Wanted

Are you interested in using your talents to worship and praise God!  The Praise Band is always changing and rotating, so we would like to discuss ways to get you involved.  New instruments are always welcome (including strings, keyboards, percussion, drums, guitars, piano and more).  Lead and back-up singers, and especially those who are comfortable leading worship, are also needed.

Please contact our 9:30am Worship Leader Chris Lane.
