The Adult choir meets on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in the music suite. The choir is made up of volunteers from their mid- 20’s to 80 years old. The vast majority are not soloist, but people who love to sing and lead our church family in worship through a choral setting. We seek to present our best every Sunday as an offering to God through intentional and focused rehearsals. We have different worship and choral events throughout the year. The choir hosts a composer weekend, Easter and Christmas specials, and an anthem worship concert featuring our favorite anthems. Come and join us as we seek to lead our church family in worship. Soli Deo Gloria
The Adult Ensemble is a selected group from the choir that sings more challenging pieces for worship or pieces that are more suited to a smaller group. It is used periodically in worship as well as special services.
Youth choir is made up of middle and high school students. Our rehearsal is on Sundays at 5:00 p.m. and they sing at the 6:00 p.m. services as well as periodically on Sunday mornings. We also do a music and missions weekend where we sing at various locations with a missions emphasis.
Children’s Choir is made up of children from 1 st -5 th grades. They meet at 6:00 p.m. in room 206 on Wednesday evenings. Mrs. Babbs Douglas is the director and the children learn about music in the church and prepare songs for worship and a spring musical. These are our worship leaders of the present and future and Mrs. Douglas does a great job of teaching our children to sing and lift praises to God.
Our handbells are used on special worship services throughout the year. Rev. Myron Douglas leads this group of ringers. The choir plays a couple times of year in worship and during Easter and Christmas seasons. The rehearsal times vary according to schedules.
The Koart Scholar program really started around 2006 with two young ladies from the Schwob School of music. Since that time, a scholarship program started in the spring of 2015 in the name of Diane Koart. Because of her gift we are able to offer music intern scholarships to students from the Schwob School of Music. These interns sing in the adult choir, play or sing according to their primary instrument, and help with handbells, youth choir, children’s and preschool choirs. It is the intent of the Koart Scholarship program to prepare music students for music ministry in the local church.
Our preschool choir is for ages 3-5. Mrs. Gena Davis directs this group and they meet at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday nights in room 110. The children do crafts and exercises directed at learning music. They will sing periodically in worship and especially around the Christmas season.
