Music


Music is a vital part of our congregation. Music expresses our deep love of God with a variety of musical styles and through many types of musical experiences. These experiences are incorporated into the worship time. Various groups as well as soloists contribute to directing our time of worship to give praise and glory to God. There are many gifted musicians in our congregation. They share their talent with us as soloists and through our musical groups.

Vocal Choir The vocal choir, directed by Barry Cooper, is for ages high school and older and practices on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm in the sanctuary. The current schedule has the choir singing on the first and third Sunday of every month.



Handbells The handbell choir, directed by Barry Cooper, is open to the church community and any other person interested in playing. Barry has been a bell ringer for several years and brings a wealth of experience. The bell choir includes members from several different churches and has performed at worship services and other events both on and off the island. They regularly offer music in worship on the second Sunday of every month.  In addition, they can be available for weddings, concerts and other special events. 
Weekly practices are on Wednesday evening -- at 5:45 pm, in the church Fellowship Hall.

Other Music There are many opportunities throughout the year for vocalists and instrumentalists to provide solo, duet and ensemble music for worship and for concerts for Christmas, Easter and special occasions. If you are interested in participating in any of the mentioned ways, please contact our church office.
