Adult Music Ministry
Chancel Choir - directed by Mary Kepple
Chancel Choir’s worship presentations are always appreciated and very meaningful to the congregation. The comradery the choir has in working together and caring for one another like a family is a blessing (this is true for the majority of those who have many years vested in the choir). It involves working together to share something with, in this case, the congregation. It is often a stress reliever even though many of our members lead busy lives and come to rehearsals tired and/or weary. However, after singing and laughing, they come away often feeling better.
Much of this is due to our leadership which under the past three director/organists has been exceptional.
Wesley Ringers Bell Choir - directed by Mary Kepple
Experiencing beautiful music is one way to become closer to God. This can be true for both the listener and the one creating the music. It is through music that we hope to transform lives. Thirteen ringers and several substitutes are required for ringing five octaves of handbells and three octaves of choir chimes. The Wesley Ringers offer their music in worship at least once a month. We also play for weddings, offer concerts, and have small ensembles that play for community functions and special services.
We celebrate that year after year we have talented and faithful volunteers willing to attend weekly rehearsals. We celebrate that we are friends, we support each other, and that we can create music together. The bonds of creating music together are very personal and special. We celebrate that the congregation is generous with their affirmations of what we do.
