Worship Music

We are a church who strives to bring inclusivity to everything we do. As it relates to worship, inclusiveness means that we offer modern music while also utilizing contemporized versions of traditional hymns. Our professional jazz band leads the music once every other month and congregational singing is incorporated into every worship service. While the services tend to follow a similar weekly flow, the feel of worship can vary from contemplative to interactive, or something in-between. Whatever your music and style preference, we’re confident you’ll experience it here.

"Praise God!
Praise God in the sanctuary and under the open skies!
Praise God’s acts of power and magnificent greatness!
Praise God with trumpet sound; with lute and harp!
Praise God with tambourine and dance; with strings and flute!
Praise God with clanging cymbals; with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that breathes praise our Creator God!"

- Psalm 150

Hand Bell Choir

Our bell choir is directed by Dennis Olsen and rehearses from 6:30-8:00 PM on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, September through May. The ensemble periodically shares musical selections during worship, as participants’ schedules allow. Whether or not you have prior experience singing or playing musical instruments, it’s never too late to give bell ringing a try. Please join us!

* Note: The coordination of participants' schedules is proving to be a bit challenging. The Hand Bell Choir will be taking a brief hiatus and hopes to resume rehearsals in the future.

For more information or to sign up to participate, please let us know!

Pop-up Choir

Do you enjoy singing but don’t have the time to commit to a choir that rehearses and sings during worship on a weekly basis? You’ll fit right in! We know what it’s like to be busy and have multiple, life-giving opportunities vying for your time. That’s why we seek to offer occasional, pop-up, choral opportunities.  

The next set of pop-up choir rehearsals begins after worship on Sunday, March 3 from 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM. Rehearsals will last for three weeks and the choir will lead all of the worship music on Palm Sunday, March 24.

Add your name to the list of people interested in participating in the pop-up choir and be sure to join us when it next works for you!

Keep me in the know!

Sharing Your Musical Gifts

Are you someone who loves to sing? Perhaps you play the piano. Maybe you’re ready to debut your mandolin skills. Regardless of your instrument, we are always interested in involving people in the leading of music during worship! Whether it's joining the worship band or playing/singing a solo or with a small ensemble, we want to empower you to share your musical gifts! Interested in rehearsing with the worship band? Please let us know! Eager to schedule your trio? Please indicate as such and we will work with you to find a date that aligns with your schedule and a worship service when the theme for the day pairs nicely with your musical selection.

I Want TO SHARE MY GIFTS

"For as in one body we have many members and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us."

- Romans 12:4-6a

Movement and The Arts

Each of us has been blessed with a variety of gifts, abilities and talents. Do yours include dance, acting, the spoken word or reader’s theater? How about painting, photography, pottery, mosaic, drawing or woodworking? We are always looking for new, creative ways to incorporate the giftedness of others into our experiences of worship and life together. Please be sure to tell us about your passions, skills and talents, along with any ideas you may have for how they can be used to praise God and bless others!
