The adult Sanctuary Choir sings in worship services regularly throughout the Church year. This choir supports and encourages the congregational singing of hymns, psalms, and the liturgy. They also provide special music, drawing from the rich heritage of sacred choral music from the Christian church and around the world, and throughout the centuries. No prior choral experience is necessary. We would love to have you sing with us!

The adult chime ensemble provides music for the worship services throughout the Church year. A variety of chime/bell literature, including hymn settings, classical transcriptions, and choral accompaniments are utilized. Prior ringing experience is not necessary, although some music reading ability is helpful. New members are welcome at any time.
Instrumentalists provide vital musical leadership in our worship services throughout the year, particularly at Christmas and Easter. Musical contributions include instrumental pieces, choral accompaniment, and supporting congregational singing through inventive hymn concertato settings.
