The Adult Choir
The Adult Choir, which is for persons in the ninth grade or older, sings a variety of music during the Morning Worship and offers special music during the Christmas season, Lent, and Easter. For special choral works, persons from the congregation are encouraged to augment the choir even though they may not be able to sing regularly throughout the year. The choir rehearses Thursdays at 7:30pm in the choir room, and warms up on Sundays at 10:15am (during the school year).

This choir is for children and youth currently enrolled in grades 1-8. We always love to have new members!

On Sunday, May 14, 2017, we celebrated the legacy of a woman who has influenced the lives of countless children through music and the gift of her generous heart. Thank you, Marty Shafer, director of Children’s & Youth Choir, for giving 33 years of love and dedication and direction to the choir. We aren’t saying good-bye because you’re still a very special part of North Church.

InerG (intergenerational choir)
“InerG” is the intergenerational choir that provides special music once a month during the 10:45 a.m. service, led by music assistant Kurt Ebsary. We are musicians (vocal and instrumental of all skill levels) ranging in age from 8th grade through adult who want to experience the joy of creation and praise through music. The ensemble practices once a month for an hour and performs one Sunday a month. Everyone is welcome! Contact Kurt Ebsary with interest or questions. Next date to lead worship: Sunday, May 28.

The Handbell Choir
“Celebration Ringers”, our adult handbell choir for ages 15 and older, is an experienced group but is able to “fold in” new ringers who have musical experience.  Rehearsals are at 6:30pm on Thursdays prior to adult choir practice (during the school year).
