Chancel choir

Dr. Brian Norcross, Director

The Chancel Choir sings anthems for most 10:45 services, September through May and

also sings for 8:15 services on select festival services. The choir is open to all singers,

high school age and older. Two rehearsals are offered for singers to choose: 1) Thursday nights 7:45 to 9:15, working on the anthem for the week, anthems for future Sundays and a major work; and 2) Sunday mornings 9:30 to 10:30, working exclusively on the anthem for that week.

The Chancel Choir generally prepares two major works each season, which are performed in worship services. The repertoire of the Chancel Choir is highly varied ranging from "classical" music to spirituals. Major works usually include full orchestra accompaniment. To join, come

to rehearsal, which is located in the choir room, on the lower level of the building.

christian street praise band

Joe Anthony, Worship Leader

The Christian Street Band was formed more than 10 years ago when a small group began to explore new ways to worship God using more contemporary models. Today, under the direction of Joe Anthony, the team is comprised of talented instrumentalists and vocalists who share a vision of serving God and the congregation by "giving back" the amazing gift of music. If you are an experienced musician or vocalist, and you have been called by God to serve, please contact Joe through the church office at 717-394-7231 or by email
