worshippraise-01Adult Choir

No audition required

Rehearsals: Sundays 5:30-7:00pm*, sanctuary; Sundays 10:00-10:15am, choir room

The adult choir is a group of people from all backgrounds that meets each week to rehearse music for our Sunday morning worship services and other special services throughout the year. The adult choir sings all sorts of musical styles. Our main purpose is to bring glory to God through worship. The adult choir is open to all adults graduated from the youth group and beyond.

We have a band and vocal ensemble that participates in the Sunday morning worship services. Any instrumentalist or vocalist interested in being a part of this group should contact Tyson Hankins.

Handbell Choir

No audition required, but we can teach beginner music/handbells to start off each season

Rehearsals: Sundays 4:30-5:30pm*, sanctuary (August-December and January-May)

We have a three-octave handbell (and two-octave handchime) choir that rings during our Sunday morning worship services as well as special services throughout the year. Reading music is a plus, but we offer the basics to anyone interested in learning.

*Upon request, childcare can be available during this rehearsal time

Audio and Visual Teams

An important part of our worship and praise is the audio and visual teams. Volunteers assist with running the audio or running projection for our Sunday morning worship services. While it helps to be a technical person, training is offered to anyone interested in being a part of this ministry.

Special Events

From time to time, our congregation enjoys special programs from our choirs which range in style from a simple children’s program to a beautiful cantata to a musical complete with drama, set, lights and costumes. Anyone interested in participating is welcome to make a short-term commitment to one of these special events. Past programs include:

  • “Acorns to Oaks” (children’s musical)
  • “Great Big Story” (children’s Christmas musical)
  • “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” (Christmas musical)
  • “Song of the Shadows” (Holy Week cantata)
  • “The Christmas Story – A Classic Carol Celebration” (Christmas cantata)

Worship Team

The purpose of our worship team is to evaluate all aspects of our worship services and look for new ways to encourage our congregation in the joyful worship of our Lord Jesus Christ. The worship team also helps in the implementation of special services during Holy Week, Thanksgiving, Advent and other special times throughout the year.
