The Music Experiencemusic

Many people find that music is an essential part of their everyday lives.  In fact, most experience it even at times when they don’t realize it.  Music takes us all to a place where words are not quite adequate and perceptions are stretched.  This miraculous gift of music in our lives is something to be celebrated and acknowledged.  The blessing of music is explored in most experiences within our church. Breaking the mold of “sacred music” to make “music sacred” is a tribute to our faith and honors our worship journey in a unique way.

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir (Facebook) sings nearly every Sunday during the program year and offers occasional “worship concerts” during special times on our calendar.  This group of dedicated volunteer singers works hard to put forward music in a wide variety of styles and genres.  For example, on any given Sunday, you might hear a rich service filled with Gregorian Chants only to find one week later the music style is completely “Southern Gospel.”  The choir strives to offer the highest quality music to the best of their ability in order to allow themselves and the worshiping congregation to experience every aspect of the worship service in deep, meaningful ways.  The Chancel Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in the Chapel.  For more information, contact Tim Coles or send an email to
