Ministering through Music

New people are always welcome in all of our music ministries! For more information please contact:

 

The Adult Choir

IMG_3639The 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

Any child in grades 1-8 is welcome to join us Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:10 for music, instruments, games, fellowship and fun! Children’s choir will meet nearly every Sunday and contribute beautiful music during worship a few times throughout the year. The choir presents a pageant each year in December to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

We love to see familiar faces and new faces; please consider joining even if you haven’t participated before or if you are not (yet) a regular church attender. All are welcome. Since the choir really enjoyed playing chimes last year, we will be using the chimes more regularly throughout this year and we have some really fun songs to work on.

The Christmas Pageant is scheduled for Sunday, December 16, with two performances: 10:15 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Our pageant this year is “Arrest These Merry Gentlemen.” For now, we will start rehearsals at 9:15 a.m. Additionally, we have been asked to sing at the alternative marketplace on the first Sunday of Advent (December 2nd). We will sing one of the songs from the pageant during the after church event around 11:15.
Please see schedule below for pageant rehearsals. If you will not attend a rehearsal or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or text Alanna at (716) 481-4195.

InerG (intergenerational choir)

“InerG” is the intergenerational choir that provides special music once a month during worship, 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 or less. Everyone is welcome! Contact Kurt Ebsary with interest or questions.

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).
