Music and Choir



The Choir
Make a joyful noise with us! Our dynamic choir welcomes everyone who loves to sing. We are an enthusiastic group of people who are passionate about making great music. Come give us a try!

Between September and June, we rehearse Sundays at 8:45 am before the service and Mondays at 7 pm. The ability to read music is a plus, but is not necessary.

If you are interested in adding your musical talents to the worship service or have any questions about the music program, please contact Nancy Holland, Music Director: nholland22@gmail.com.

The Music Team

The music team supports the music director, Dr. Nancy Holland in providing beautiful music during the weekly Sunday church services.  They also are involved with the planning and presentation of a variety of church events for fun, fundraising or a combination of both.

The music team meets on a monthly basis to discuss upcoming and past musical events. There are currently seven enthusiastic members focused on offering the best possible musical events to support the church.

Musical Experience 

Unique for its bright acoustics, our beautiful sanctuary offers a wonderful musical experience and has hosted a variety of performers, from a saw and mandolin duo to symphony orchestras. Regardless of the performer, every musician who plays here experiences the brilliant fullness of the room.
