Make a Joyful Noise

Music is an important and integral part of our worship experiences.

Pastor Steve is an accomplished musician in his own right, and it is not unusual to have one of his musical creations in our services.

Our 10:30 worship service is graced with the sounds of our Chancel Choir and very often by one or more of our handbell choirs.

Our 8:15 worship is blessed by the music of our organist, Ken Plant, as he makes our organ and grand piano fill the sanctuary with heavenly music. Handbells frequently add to the “joyful noise” of this service.

In addition to our choirs, vocal and instrumental soloists also enrich our worship on various occasions.

Below, you will find a brief description of some of our music programs.
