Worship - Music


Chancel Choir is our SATB choir directed by Lori Bitz and accompanied by Sally Mossing. The choir rehearses 7-8 Wednesday evenings, September-early June. This is a dedicated choir that enjoys singing many styles of music. This choir usually sings three times per month for the Sunday 10:40 a.m. service, the Christmas Eve service, and for Maundy Thursday. Our choirs combine for Easter and Pentecost Sundays.

Treble Choir is made up of women in the congregation who enjoy singing at services. They are directed by Lori Bitz and sing at the 10:40 a.m. Sunday service periodically. This choir also rehearses Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7PM. The Treble Choir embrace different styles of music and enjoy the challenge of three-part singing.

Chancel Bell Choir is an ensemble of bells and chimes directed by Lori Bitz. This is a dedicated group that enjoys members of all ages, teens and up. No experience necessary! Rehearsals are 11:45-12:45 following the second worship service. The bell choir typically plays one Sunday a month at the 10:40 a.m. service. Even if you cannot make a full-time commitment, anyone who would enjoy simply filling in from time to time is also welcome.

The Band is our Praise and Worship band which typically meets on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m. for rehearsal. The Band shares their style of music at various times throughout the year on Sunday mornings, typically on the second Sunday of each month, and for the family Christmas Eve service.

Soloists and Ensembles During the summer our choirs choose to have a break in their Sunday morning commitments. Members of our congregation come forward to share their many gifts as soloists or as part of an ensemble, and this time of the year also gives us the opportunity to invite guest musicians to be part of our worship. If you are interested in sharing your gifts, contact Sally Mossing, Director of Music.
