Sanctuary Choir

Rehearsal Time: 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays in the Choir Room

Age: High School age and up

Director: Grace Chase

          The Choir is the core of our adult music ministry at FBC.  They lead worship in the 11:00 a.m. service.  Traditionally, all soloists and small groups are formed from the choir.  Under the direction of the music minister, and with the accompaniment of both organ and piano, our choir lifts praise to the Lord with at least one anthem each Sunday, and hold special worship services at Christmas, Easter and a patriotic service around our nation's anniversary.

          Some of our members have years of training and experience singing with a choir, while others are singing with a choir for the very first time.  Auditions are not required, unless you are a soloist, and reading music is helpful but also not a prerequisite.  No matter our personal level of experience, we all have a love for music and singing in our call to worship God.  

We are proud to have members who have been with our choir for over 60 years, and yet we are always ready to welcome visitors and newcomers to our next rehearsal.

Singing Saints

Rehearsal Time: 11:30 a.m. Thursdays in the Choir Room

Age: 55+

Director: Grace Chase

           A fun choir for all congregants who may be mature in years, but remain young at heart--even those who "can't sing a note!"

          This group does get serious enough to put on two musicals per year.  The remainder of time is spent enjoying praising God in song and fellowshipping with great friends.  Open to all who are interested in praising God, and having fun while doing it.


Handbell Choir

Rehearsal Time: 6:30 p.m. Mondays in the Handbell Room

Age: High School and up

Director: Grace Chase

            Three-octave choir which includes both traditional bells and chimes. Participants must have skills in counting and reading notes.  

           Often accompanied by organ and/or piano, this group of approximately a dozen ringers play in the worship services, especially around the holidays, as a solo instrumental ensemble and also as additional instrumental support on choral anthems with the Adult Choir.  They also play at least annually at the local nursing home.
