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 7:30 p.m. in the choir room, and warms up on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. (during the school year).
Children’s & Youth Choir
This choir is for children and youth currently enrolled in grades 1-8. We always love to have new members! Alanna Carlins is thrilled to be the new children’s choir director at North Church! Children’s choir will meet after the 10am worship service until noon every week starting October 1. The choir will be singing in the 10 o’ clock worship service on Sunday, October 22. Alanna says she can’t wait to see all of the children of North Church; it is going to be a fun year! Any questions contact Alanna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 10:00 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. Join us on Sunday, September 24, from 6-8 p.m., in the fellowship hall, for dinner and singing. This is in preparation for singing on Sunday, October 1, during the 10:00 a.m. worship service, but anyone can come regardless of your availability on 10/1.
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).
