Chancel ChoirChancel Choir

“With gratitude in our hearts” the Chancel Choir sings “psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God” as we lead in musical worship each Sunday morning during the 11 am traditional worship service.  We present musical offerings as we sing Introits, Anthems, Prayer Responses, Choral Benedictions and lead the congregation in the singing of the hymns of our faith.

The Chancel Choir also presents cantatas and musicals during the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter and at other events in the life of the church. We invite you to come and join with us as we make music to the glory of our LORD.  We meet for practice on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm and on Sundays at 10:40 am in the choir room located upstairs behind the church sanctuary.  For more information please contact John Cox, Chancel Choir Director, at johncox421@gmail.com or706.975.6502.

 

Handbells

Bell ChoirThe handbell ministry uses the beautiful instruments of handbells and tone chimes to make a joyful noise to the Lord. Our ministry includes three groups: Elementary and middle school aged kids ring in the two octave choir called “King’s Ringers.” The three octave “Chancel Bell Choir” includes people from high school age through senior adults. Those of us who can’t seem to get enough to ring have formed a five-person 1 1/2 octave ensemble named “Alleluia!”

The Chancel Bells and Alleluia! ring in our worship services throughout the year, and the King’s Ringers during the school year.  All of the bell choirs ring during Advent, Christmas, Lenten and Easter seasons. From time to time, we take our ministry “on the road” and ring in other churches. The bell choirs rehearse weekly in the choir room.

King’s Ringers – Wednesdays 5:00 pm

Alleluia! – Sundays 5:00 pm

Chancel Bells – Sundays 5:30 pm  We invite you to join us if you would like to learn a new art form and be part of an instrumental choir that gives praise to the Lord with a joyful noise! Please contact Jan Baker, Handbell Director, at 770-358-0924, or the church office at 770-358-1494.
