The Primary Choir is for ages 3 years-Kindergarten. They meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:00-5:30 with Marcy Lay, Wilmoth Foreman and Cindy Baxter on the first floor in Room 107.
Our children’s choirs will begin our fall programming with great energy and focus on musical education and worship participation with special emphases on a Children’s Sabbath in October and a children’s Christmas musical to be presented in mid-December. We hope all of our youngsters will be able to participate in these special services.
The Young Musicians Choir is comprised of children in First-Fifth Grades. They meet in the Choir Room on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-6:45.
The Chancel Choir, our primary service choir, rehearses
on Wednesday evenings at 7:10 PM. We always seek
and welcome additions to our Chancel Choir throughout
the year. We especially encourage youth and adults who
are musically gifted, and/or those who love to sing, to
consider serving in the ministry of music as a part of our
Chancel Choir this fall as we begin a new season of
leading in worship. All are welcome; and childcare is
always available for anyone who would desire it.
The Celebration Ringers Handbell Choir plays
intermediate to advanced music on 4+ octaves of
Schulmerich handbells and 3 octaves on Malmark handchimes. The primary focus of this choir is playing for worship services and occasional special services. It has also played for various community events. The Celebration Ringers practice from 6:00-7:00 PM on Thursday evenings from September to May. This choir is always open to substitutes and to new members as openings occur. The bellchoir is directed by Marcy Lay.
The Carolyn Reynolds Fisher Pipe organ was officially dedicated on September 8, 2002. The organ is a mechanical action instrument, built entirely by the Bradley Rule Organ Company in New Market, Tennessee. The organ is comprised of 27 stops (31 ranks). Two ranks are from the original pipe work of the 1916 Felgemaker organ; B. Rule furnished other 19th century ranks, and Paul Byron of York, Maine made the remaining pipework. The wooden trackers (of which there are over 2,000 lineal feet) are made of white pine that was salvaged from the swell box panels of an 1899 E. L. Holbrook organ. The organ has an eight level memory system that can recall any registration at the touch of a piston.
