Interested in participating?
Contact the Music Coordinator
If you would like to participate in any of these groups, we encourage you to join us or contact our Music Coordinator, Sharon Goodrum.
The Chancel Choir, under the direction of Greg Carpenter, enhances the service with particular attention to the worship theme for the day.
Tower Bells, also under the direction of Greg Carpenter, plays a five-octave set of Malmark bells, adding to the beauty of sound and sight to worship.
10:30 am Music Ensemble
The ensemble that provides music for the 10:30 am service uses familiar hymns and songs with contemporary accompaniments. Because there are no weekday rehearsals, this group operates on the principle that one must be able to read music sufficiently to receive the song list and arrive on Sunday morning ready to play/sing.
We are privileged to have John Sheaffer at our Schantz Pipe Organ. John brings his own special talents to the service music and the hymns.
Golden Bells is a handbell choir primarily for seniors. If offers a fun musical experience and Christian fellowship. Regular rehearsals are Wednesdays from 9:30 am to 10:30 am. This bell choir does not participate in formal worship services but offers two Christmas programs and two programs in the spring at area retirement homes.
Gift of Music
During the summer months, our choir and handbells take a well deserved break and we enlist the help of talented soloists and small groups to assist with worship. We thank them for sharing their talents with our congregation.
