Since our beginning, music has always been an integral part of our worship and fellowship. Beginning with hymns, then vocal choirs and more recently expanding to handbell and handchime choirs, we recognize that music allows us to “pray twice” as we sing and ring our praises.

Music plays an important role at First Church and we are blessed with a vibrant music ministry for children and adults of all ages. We offer adult handbell choirs, adult choir, a festival choir and children’s choirs:

Vocal Choirs

  • Carillon Choir – 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Grade
