Leading God's people in singing words of praise, prayer, hope and lament in order to bring people closer to God through music
Ringing out under the direction of Pat Latshaw. If you're looking for a unique way to share your musical talents, the handbell choir welcomes you to join us as we create beautiful music. We perform roughly once a month at the 8:00am and 10:30am Sunday worship services.

"Unlike an orchestra or choir in which each musician is responsible for one line of the texture, a bell ensemble acts as one instrument, with each musician responsible for particular notes, sounding his or her assigned bells whenever that note appears in the music."
If you love to sing, whether you think you're good at it or not, join us in making a glad sound!
Rehearsals are Wednesday nights from 7:30-8:30PM.
We have a lot of fun together and provide vocal support and special music during the 10:30AM worship service most Sundays. We occasionally sing at the 8:00AM service as well. .
We have many members and staff who share their musical gifts as instrumental or vocalists. Do you play an instrument or enjoy singing? Join us!
