The music of the people of God should help us in the chief end of humanity: To glorify and enjoy God forever.


We invite all to be part of the music life of the community of faith. Whether you enjoy singing, have an instrumental talent, or would like to learn more about making a joyful noise to the Lord, there is a place for you. 


Our Chancel Choir offers anthems, sung responses, and assists the congregation in worshiping God on most Sunday mornings. The Chancel Choir is open to all and is under the direction of Dr. Rebecca te Velde. To learn more about the Chancel Choir, click here.
