Upcoming Music Events



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. Rehearsals are Wednesday nights at 7 PM in the church sanctuary. 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 (ages 14-adult) add another dimension to worship services by providing unspoken prayers and spiritual communication through music. Rehearsals are on Thursdays at 7 PM in the church sanctuary, August through May. The bells play on the 2nd and 3rd Sunday at alternate services (8:00 & 11:00 am) from August through May. Come join us!

Children (4-8 yrs 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 and are also instilled with important spiritual basics, such as reciting the Lord’s prayer and Biblical readings on what they sing about.  Jewels meet on Monday evenings from 6-6:30 PM in the sanctuary during the school year. The group sings once a month in services, as well as high holiday services.

This beginning bell choir is for ages 5-9, and meets on Monday evenings in the sanctuary at 5:30pm and again at 6:30pm.  (Before and after the Jewels choir practice.)

Presently, we have bell choir A, B and C, and instructors are Mr. Barry and Ms. Sharon.  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.  Attendance is mandatory to participate, as teamwork and discipline is stressed for the bells.  Each bell choir plays in one morning service once per month.

The 9:30 am Contemporary Praise Team is looking for singers and musicians. Singers perform on a rotating basis.  Ability to read music is important. Rehearsals are held once a week. Drummers, guitar players, and keyboard players are welcome as regulars or substitutes.

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.

If you love singing and theatre, this choir is for you! Designed for tweens and teens grades 6-12, we meet on Sunday evenings for rehearsal in the sanctuary. Come join us! About once a month we will be singing during one worship service, and we’ll work toward putting on a musical/drama presentation together once per year.
