Our extensive and fun music program provides people of all ages with opportunities to share their love of music and talents in various ways throughout the year. If you want to praise God through music- singing, ringing, or playing – you’re in! Our music director, Diane Grebe prepares and plans our musical experience each week.
The Chancel Choir
The Chancel Choir is our adult mixed choir. Anyone of high school age or older is welcome to join our adult soprano, alto, tenor, and bass mixed choir. The Chancel Choir practices each Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. While most of our singers attend every week, if a full year commitment is too much for you to make, consider joining the choir for a season such as Advent and Christmas or Lent and Easter.
No auditions needed – just show up. There’s a seat waiting for you!
Ask any choir member what singing in the Chancel Choir does for them. Very likely they will say that after an exhausting day at work, it is inspirational and soothing to go to choir practice. The music lets them put the stress of the day behind, get in touch with something beautiful and holy, and end the day relaxed and uplifted. There is great joy in serving the Lord through music and wonderful fellowship among choir members.
The Advent Choir
If you have a child in grade kindergarten through sixth grade who likes to sing – have them join the Advent Choir. This choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. The choir sings at the 11am service about once a month.
If you can’t sing to save your soul, but you have rhythm in your heart and can read music, then the Memorial Bells might be perfect for you.
This choir rings our 3+ octaves Schulmerich handbells and handchimes. The Memorial Bells ARE BACK! Contact Diane if you’d like to ring 634.4800
CrossWinds is the contemporary praise band that provides music for the 9:00 a.m. service on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. It’s members are Steven Metivier, Fred Hawke, and Chris Watson who come to us with years of experience as professional musicians.
The Harmony Handbells are a community choir that rehearses in our sanctuary every Saturday morning. They are directed by Megan Blake and are joined by members from all over WNY!
