Worship Music at 10 a.m.
Our traditional Sunday morning worship service embraces the richness of church tradition with a full pipe organ, choir and bell choir. Traditional hymns are sung and the choir is part of the worship time.
Regular choir rehearsals are Thursdays from 7–9 p.m. in the Phoenix Center (Bldg 700). There are no auditions and perfect attendance is not required.
The choir also participates in a Christmas Eve service, and extends its ministry of music with concerts in early December and in the spring.
The choir is directed by and accompanied by organist .
Enjoy this special video of organist Valerie Sterk playing the church's Balcom and Vaughan pipe organ with video insets of pipework in the Great Chamber, keys in action, pedals, Glockenstern Bells and more.
The Choir of Bells shares their gift of music during worship once per calendar month from September through June, and at an annual concert. There are about 13 ringers aged 12 and older, some of whom have been ringing since they were small children and others who have only been ringing a few months, and some family groups who ring together.
The Choir of Bells practices each Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. in the Sanctuary beginning in September. We always have a lot of fun and the fellowship is wonderful. For anyone interested in joining the “Bells,” the ability to read music is a big bonus, but is not absolutely necessary—we will teach you what you need to know!
