Adult Music Ministry

Handbells | 6 – 6:45 pm | Room 319
Adult handbell ringers will rehearse for upcoming services. At this time, we plan to distance our tables, wear masks and provide added ventilation in a large rehearsal room. Handbell ringing is the perfect music option in a pandemic — an entirely percussive musical experience with tables and bells safely distanced from each other. How great that we always wear gloves!

Sanctuary Choir | 7 – 8:15 pm | Sanctuary
The anchor of our music ministry, this adult choir sings in the morning worship services. The Sanctuary Choir also prepares larger works for special seasons of the church year. We will rehearse in masks and distanced by 15 feet throughout the sanctuary using the main floor, the balcony, and the choir loft. Please enter and exit through the front doors unless you prefer a ramp.

If you are interested in being a part of Handbell or Sanctuary Choir, please contact Doug ( or Terri ( Vancil.

Matt 10:29-31 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
