Get Your Praise On!
The Music and Worship Ministry strives to create inspiring worship experiences and provide musical opportunities for people to participate in worship. The flagship of our ministry is the Chancel Choir which provides worship music for most Sundays of the year. The Chancel Choir is open to all adults and youth and sings songs in a variety of traditional and contemporary musical styles. This choir presents a special musical cantata every Christmas and special music at Easter. In recent years they have performed with brass quintet, keyboards and timpani, and orchestra.
Our handbell ministry includes two groups, the larger Handbell Ringers and the PraiseRing Quartet. New ringers are always welcome in the former group and no previous ringing experience is required – we’ll teach you what you need to know about ringing and you’ll soon find yourself up to speed with the group. PraiseRing is an auditioned group of experienced ringers ringing multiple bells instead of just two.
Youth and Children have had various music and worship arts experiences in recent years, including girls liturgical dance team, youth worship teams, and children’s singing and chime ringing.
All musical, dramatical, and artistic people are invited to use their gifts in worship – just talk to Dr. Paul McGahie or anyone involved in these ministries.
