Worship Team • We seek to utilize the many gifts of our members. Whether your instrument is the piano, tuba, trumpet, flute, guitar, mandolin, voice, or anything in between, you are encouraged to make your talents known. There are ongoing opportunities for musicians of varying experience to accompany the Adult Choir or to help lead in worship. Contact Connan Coker for more information.
Adult Choir • Our Adult Choir is a tremendously fun group of adults who have varying degrees of musical experience, but who share a common desire to develop their gifts and use them for God’s glory. Whether you have a music degree or can’t read music at all, you are welcome to join with the adult choir as we learn and prepare a variety of anthems to sing for our Maker. No auditions necessary!
Handbell Ensemble • Our handbell choir practices in Room 105 each Wednesday night during the school year. Contact Michele Webb or the church office for more information.
51:15 (Youth Choir) • 51:15 is our student worship ministry, open to all students from 6th-12th grade. The group’s name comes from Psalm 51:15, which states, “O Lord, open my mouth and my lips will declare Your praise.” 51:15 exists to give students an opportunity to learn about and lead in worship, and encourages students to view worship as a lifestyle. In addition to singing and playing instruments, 51:15 members join in serving others through weekend trips and a summer mission tour.
Children’s Music • In the fall semester, our children work on a Christmas musical to present each December, complete with costumes, drama, choreography, solos, etc. This group meets on Wednesday nights during the TouchPoint hour (6:30-7:30). Check the calendar for the Christmas musical presentation. Each summer, we offer a week long Music Camp for completed 1st-5th graders. At the end of the week, the kids present a full-length musical and enjoy a dessert fellowship afterword. Check the calendar for dates and cost.
