Music Ministry

MUSIC MINISTRY during COVID-19


Music is a vital part of church and worship. While our ensembles take a break for a little while, here are some of the ways that we can use music to unite us:


     HYMNS - sing the tunes or read the words as a devotion or prayer alone or in your own small group at home.

     HYMN SINGS - we do a monthly hymn sing online that you can join. Watch our facebook page for details.

     RECORDINGS - listen to the sounds of your favorite music when you need inspiration, peace or joy                                                                         (apps like Spotify and Pandora are great!) Our spotify link is listed below!

     PRACTICE - use this extra time to improve your musical skills or learn more about making music in a new way.

     COMMUNITY - music is a universal language and participating in it brings us all closer together, even in these uncertain times.

           Are you interested in being a part of a virtual community to make music? Let Amy Schutte know!

  • Christmas Cantata

    We typicall prepare a Christmas Cantata every other year. Our cantata usually runs on a Sunday in place of regular worship services. It includes music and the Word, singers, instrumentalists and children. We currently do not know what 2020 will bring for a cantata! We will keep you posted!

  • JoyFul noize

    JoyFul Noize is our Youth Praise Team! We sing monthly and meet on the Monday before we lead worship. Schedule is below! All youth grades 6-12 are welcome to be a part of JoyFul Noize!



  • Petite praisers

    Petite Praisers is a fun, energetic choir for kids in grades 1-6! We sing a lot of contemporary music, some traditional and have a lot of fun! We meet on Mondays from 5:15-5:45 in the music room. Feel free to join us!




  • Praise Teams

    Our late service worship is lead by Praise Teams each week. We currently have three adult praise teams that rehearse on Monday evenings (7:00 PM) and warm up on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM. 


  • Sound System Volunteers

    One of the most important aspects of worship is sound. If you can't hear the Pastor or the music, worship has little meaning. Our sound volunteers are vital to ministry and we are always searching for more help! You need little to no experience and can be trained. Please contact Amy Schutte or any of the staff if you are willing to help out with live sound during worship services!
