Chancel Choir

Sing to the Lord a new song!

The Chancel Choir meets each Wednesday evening in the choir room from 7:15-8:30 p.m. and is open to ages high school and up.  The Chancel Choir leads music during the 10:00 a.m. worship hour and also sings during special services throughout the year.  We have three Music Sundays a year when the chancel choir, along with other area of the music ministry, leads the entire service.  These Sundays are the third Sunday in September, the third Sunday of Advent and Palm Sunday. 

We sing various styles of music but mainly focus on traditional four part choral music.  In any given month you may hear John Rutter, Mark Hayes, G.F. Handel or Keith Getty.   We welcome new members and love to have new people join our time of song and fellowship.

Bell Choir

The Hand Bell Choir is open to all ages as long as you are able to read music.   We practice on Sunday Evenings from 4:00-5:00pm during the school year.  The bell choir plays during the 10:00am service once a month and also plays at special services of music throughout the church year.  This group is open to  anyong who is interested and is able to read music.  Prior bell ringing experience is not necessary, but a desire to praise God with music is.

Play an Instrument?
There are still ways to be involved in the music ministry even if you don't sing or play handbells.  Instrumentalists are occasionally used to play solos and ensemble pieces.  They also join the choir on special Sundays.
Children's Choirs
We have three Children's Choirs at SSUMC:
Cherubs - Preschool (must be 3 by October 1st)
Carolers - K-2nd Grade
Choristers - 3rd-5th Grade

All three of the these choirs meet on Wednesday Nights during the school year.  Each group sings 3-4 times a semester during our 10:00 worship service and they combine a couple of times a year to join our Chancel Choir on special music Sundays.  All of the choirs participate in our annual Christmas Musical in early December.  We have a great time not only singing praises to God, but playing instruments, learning Bible stories, dancing and laughing together.
