Choirs for all ages!
Our musical groups meet on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, offering variety for musicians of all ages, with singing, ringing, drumming and strumming. Worship is essential and central to the Christian community. Through our choirs we strive to teach our children and youth how to be good stewards of their time and talents and how to be active participants in worship.


There is no audition necessary to be a member of any of our groups. If you have a talent to share, please come join us!

Sundays...
Junior Jam: Grades K-2
Rehearsal: Sundays 9:00-9:20 am during the school year
Location: Music Room 207
Lead in Worship: Approximately every 6 weeks and on Celebration Sunday

In Junior Jam young people learn about worship and prepare to lead in the Sunday morning service of worship. We will be exploring new ways to share our talents in addition to singing by using instruments and movement. Join leaders Lois Reese and Patti Grayson as we journey together. Our season culminates with a musical on June 1st, telling a great Bible story through music and drama.

Wednesdays...
Youth Jam: Grades 3-8
Rehearsal: Wednesdays 4:30-5:00 pm during the school year
Location: Music Room 207
Lead in Worship: Approximately every 6 weeks

Teamwork is what it's all about here. Singing, drumming, chimes, orff instruments, studying hymns old and new; you name it, we'll try it. We'll be exploring the many ways there are to lead worship.

Adult Choir:
Rehearsal: Wednesdays 6:30 - 8:00 pm except during July
Location: Choir Room
Lead in Worship: Sundays and annual Christmas and spring cantatas

The adult choir is responsible for leading our congregational song as well as singing responses and anthems. We sing everything from Bach to Bernstein and Mendelssohn to Ray and we also have a lot of laughs along the way. We do two major musical works a year, one at Christmas and one in the spring.

Thursdays...
Hilton Ringers: Grade 6 through Adults
Rehearsal: Thursdays 6:30 - 7:30 pm during the school year

This is an intergenerational group for youth and adults. A basic knowledge of reading music notation is helpful to join the group. This choir adds to the worship experience through playing anthems, accompanying other choirs and hymns and doing processionals.

Location: Sanctuary

These are the leaders of our contemporary music. We have 4-5 singers and a group of instrumentalists including congas, guitars, and bass. We are always eager to welcome new members!
