Music

“…but be filled with the Spirit, as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.”

Ephesians 5:18-20

Our Ensembles

Choirs

We offer two weekly choirs as well as a special Cantata choir

Sonrise Singers: start their sessions yearly with only a couple of Saturday rehearsals to rehearse the repertoire for the upcoming season. Each Sunday, they gather at 7:30am for a vocal warmup and review of the worship anthem before service

Sanctuary Choir: rehearses each Wednesday evening from 6:45 till 7:30pm with our professional piano accompanist. Each Sunday, they meet at 10:15am for a group vocal warmup and rehearsal for the anthem featured during 11:00am worship

Cantata Choir and Orchestra: rehearsals for the Easter and Christmas Cantatas begin approximately two months prior to the performance date. The group combines members of all the choirs, volunteers from the congregation, and an instrumental orchestra. This faithful experience is formatted in the style of a musical, comprised largely of moving musical compositions, with a unique narrative story written specifically for our worship, and combined with beautiful visual presentations. Rehearsals for the cantatas are held on Wednesdays 6:45-7:30pm

Bells

We offer two bell ensembles, one for those who have experience performing in bell choirs, and a new group for beginners!

United Bells (New group): 5:00-5:50pm on Wednesdays in Room 213.  This group is for beginners and intermediate musicians who want to learn how to play bells

First Bells: 6:00-6:50pm on Wednesdays also in Room 213.  This group is for intermediate and experienced musicians who are familiar or comfortable with playing bells and can learn music fairly quickly

Contemporary Praise Band

Praise Band: is led by lay volunteers and rehearses weekly, usually on Wednesday or Thursday evenings, and choose their repertoire from popular contemporary Christian favorites you’ll hear on the radio and Christian broadcastings
