The Chancel Choir extends a heartfelt invitation to you to visit us in a Chancel Choir rehearsal on Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm in the Choral Suite. There are no experience or ability requirements to participate. All we ask is that you want to make a joyful noise with us, and we will take care of the rest.
The Chancel Choir sings in both the 8:45 and 11:00 am traditional worship services.
Kids JAM (Joy And Music)
KidsJAM (Joy and Music) is a fun-filled “hands-on” experience in music that will engage your 4 or 5 year-old in games, singing, movement, playing instruments, sign language, and even some Spanish, while learning Bible truths and discovering the music inside of them!
Children will learn to identify rhythm patterns, musical patterns, and intervals through singing games, playing percussion instruments and the autoharp, listening through PVC pipe “telephones”, and telling stories with the step bells. They will also hear and play instruments from around the world. Designed by music educators, KidsJAM provides sequential learning of age-appropriate pre-music-reading activities incorporating a variety of Orff, Kodaly, and Montessori methods.
Chancel and Carillon HandBell Choirs
The Chancel and Carillion Handbells are auditioned ensembles of 13 ringers each under the direction of Jerry Westenkuehler. The choir plays 5 octaves of Schulmerich Handbells and 5 octaves of Malmark Choir Chimes regularly in worship.
