Chancel Choir
The Chancel Choir is open to high school students and older who enjoy choral singing. The choir sings for the 10:30 a.m. service most Sundays from Labor Day through Memorial Day. We practice every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Contact Jerry Smith at (419) 260-5905 for more information.

Children of God Choir
The Children of God is our choir for school-age children. The Children of God will sing at the 10:30 a.m. service six to eight times during the school year. A weekly practice time will be determined based on the participants’ availability. Contact Jerry Smith at (419) 260-5905 to learn more.

Handbell Choir (Adult)
The Chancel Handbell Choir meets on Thursday evenings at 6:00 on the third floor in the bell room.  We rehearse each week for one hour beginning September 6th to the middle of May and ring as a part of the second worship service about once a month.  We have a short rehearsal before the service when we ring. Have you ever thought of ringing but had questions?  Let me answer the most common ones.

  1. Do I need to be able to read music?  NO, all you need to be able to do is to count to 4 and to distinguish your right hand from your left.
  2. Do I need to be able to stand for the entire hour rehearsal?  NO, we have a few stools for ringers who need to sit.
  3. Do I need to wear gloves?  Yes, to protect your hands from the bell handles and the bells from your hands.
  4. Do I need to attend all rehearsals?  Yes, if you are not in attendance, your bells will be silent.  Imagine trying to sing a hymn on Sunday with missing notes!
  5. Do angels play heavenly harps?  NO, they ring handbells!
