ADULT CHOIR

Have the best seat in the “house” with other fun loving, joyful noise types! Enhance our worship at Living Word through singing a variety of music from different eras and cultures, and enjoy the fellowship of a caring, welcoming group of people. The choir sings weekly, alternating between the 8:00 and 11:00 AM services beginning the last week in August through the last week in May.  We would love to have you join us!

THE LIVING BELLS

The Living Bells (ages 14-adult) add another dimension to worship services by providing unspoken prayers and spiritual communication through music. Rehearsals are held August through May, and the bells play at alternate services (8:00 & 11:00 am) from August through May. We are always happy to welcome new members.  To join us, simply show up!

JEWELS CHOIR

Children (5-10 years old) are invited to join Living Word's Jewels Choir. In a fun and encouraging environment, kids learn to sing correctly and begin rudiments of music theory.  They are also instilled with important spiritual basics, such as reciting the Lord’s prayer and Biblical readings on what they sing about.  The group sings once a month in services, as well as  holiday services.

GRACE NOTES BELL CHOIR

Our Grace Notes Bell Choir is a beginning bell choir for children ages 6 to 10 years old. The children learn to read basic rhythms using the colored bell system. Also, the children are taught to play triadic chords, and eventually begin to read written music.  Each bell choir plays in one morning service once per month.

INSTRUMENTALISTS

Do you play a musical instrument? Has it been a while? Consider playing a solo or with a small combo to enhance a worship service, or volunteering to play in our Living Word Orchestra for our cantatas at Advent and Lent!  We also feature student soloists during the summer months during prelude and offering.
