The music in traditional worship at Faith Community is anything but old fashioned or boring!   Along with the hymns we love, you’ll find new congregational music. To add variety to our worship, our music teams draw
from many styles of music—from classical to contemporary, gospel, jazz, blues, and more.

  CHANCEL CHOIR

The Chancel Choir at Faith Community Church ministers during the traditional services in the Sanctuary on Sunday mornings. The choir follows a rotating schedule for the 9:30 and 11:00 am worship (see below for more details). Through our music ministry, we strive to prepare the way for the Holy Spirit to enter the hearts of worshipers.

Our choir consists of men and women eighteen and older, and we welcome new members on a continual basis. Many friendships have been formed in Chancel Choir. Members support one another in times of illness and need. We also take time for celebrations and refreshments so that we are not all work and no play!

CHANCEL BELLS

The Chancel Bell Ministry at Faith brings the beautiful sound
of bells to worshipers on a regular basis. The sound of the
bells often touches the heart of the listener in ways that
words cannot. Through the music of bells, presented in a
variety of styles, the Chancel Bells add to the worship
experience by sharing special music and accompanying hymns.

For some Chancel Bell members, this ministry is their primary
“small group” where they receive support, have fun, and enjoy
learning to work together to lead worship through music. While
it is difficult to add new ringers to the group, there is always a
need for substitutes and many have become regular ringers over
time.

Practice Schedule:

The Chancel Bells meet from September through May. Rehearsals
take place on Sundays in the Sanctuary from 6:30-8:00 pm.

Worship Ringing Schedule:

The Chancel Bells minister approximately once a month at
traditional services and occasionally in other venues and
settings. They sometimes join with the Chancel Choir and
other instrumentalists for multigroup numbers.

Occasionally, members ring solo or in small ensembles, 
sometimes playing for events outside of worship, such as 
weddings.

Celebrating 20+ years of Ringing!

In 2009, Faith Community commemorated 20 years of
our handbell ministry. The first three-octave set of bells
was purchased in the spring of 1989, and two more octaves
were added in 2000 and 2005. Over the 20-year period, 80
youth and 50 adults have participated in the bell ministry
at FCUMC. We give glory to God for the gift of these bells
and the service of those who ring them to enhance our
worship.

     MEN OF FAITH

    

     
 

    Started in 1992, the Men of Faith now have about 20 full-time
    members of varied backgrounds and talents. The group strives
    to glorify God through performances at Faith as well as an
    extensive music outreach program (see list below).  We 
    welcome anyone who desires to sing harmony, enjoy fellowship,
    have relaxed fun, and achieve a sense of accomplishment.

   The music ranges from hymns, anthems, classical, barbershop,
   gospel, western, patriotic, glee club, Christmas and spirituals,
   sung accompanied or a cappella.  Whatever the song, the
   group enjoys personal growth that comes with practice,
   performance and outreach to share God’s glory.

Spring Concert

Wednesday, June 4, at 7 pm. We will reprise those "good old" church

CHRISTMAS CANTATA

Faith Community will present a special Christmas cantata on Sunday, December 16
during the 9:30 and 11:00 traditional services. 

“A Night for Rejoicing,” written by Lee and Susan Naus Dengler, will feature Faith’s
Chancel Choir and instrumental ensemble as they present this Advent cantata with
scripture, narration, and beautiful carol arrangements.

It is our prayer that this special holiday music will fill your hearts with the love that
entered our world on that first, glorious Christmas night!
