We provide music at all of our worship services. Those providing music are very talented with varying styles. Those groups are as follows:
Sunday Break Praise Band
Phyllis Bailey serves as our organist for the 11:00 am Sunday morning traditional Sanctuary service and also plays for funerals and weddings in our church.
The Sanctuary Choir, led by Philip Mann, sings primarily for our 11:00 am worship service. Its purpose is to lead the congregation in singing and to provide special music for the service. We are responsible for a Choral Call to Worship and an Anthem. The Sanctuary Choir is a group of dedicated, loyal people – many of whom have been choir members for many years. Our music is chosen to coincide with the lectionary and theme for that Sunday. Our goal is to help bring a message to the congregation and to lift their spirits. Other services we are responsible for are Christmas Eve and Maundy Thursday.
We invite anyone who would like to sing to join us on Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm.
Gabriel’s Bunch is an instrumental ensemble that plays regularly for our traditional Sanctuary service. Under the direction of Philip Mann, the group provides a ministry of music and accompanies the hymns on the Sundays they perform. They rehearse Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm and welcome new members at any time.
The Memorial Ringers rehearse under the direction of Mary Anne Cooper on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm. We perform one Sunday a month, usually the third Sunday, at the traditional Sanctuary service. We welcome anyone who is interested in ringing to join us Wednesday evenings. We do welcome suggestions on musical pieces from the congregation.
open hearts. open minds. open doors.
