Music plays an integral part of worship at Emanuel. There are several
music ministry opportunities available.
The Adult Chancel Choir meets on Thursday nights at 7:30 September
through June. They perform a variety of music to enrich our 9:00
traditional services as well as special seasonal worship opportunities
and are accompanied by our organist. The Adult Chancel Choir is open
to everyone who is interested in worshiping our Lord and Savior, and
has a heart for learning. Special solo performers are selected from
this group to perform at various different times during the church year.
The handbell ensemble meets Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM in the
sanctuary. The ensemble is also open to anyone who wants to participate
in ringing praises to our Lord. They meet from September through June,
with special performances throughout the church year, including a
Christmas Eve concert performance. Handbell ringing is an art, which is
taught through weekly lessons to be applied in the music being performed.
Our Praise Band is an integral part of our Praise Worship Service on
Sunday morning at 10:45 am. The group performs a variety of contemporary
mainstream Christian worship songs. The Praise Band practices on Monday
nights at 7:00 pm and is always looking forward to adding anyone who
would like to play or sing regularly, or for just one Sunday and further
enrich our Sunday worship service.
Our children also participate and perform two musicals a year: one at
Christmas and one in the late spring. More information about the
Children’s musical under Children’s Ministry.
