Music Ministry

The goal of the Music Ministry is to unite the congregation in worship and in song, singing our theology, sharing our experiences, and celebrating our future.

Everyone is welcome as we recognize the importance of broad participation by all ages within our congregation, from preschool children to adults. Choirs, ensembles, and handbells are available for all experience levels.

Sanctuary Choir

The Sanctuary Choir is the heart of the Music Ministry at Westminster. Singing each Sunday in worship during the program year, this 40 voice choir provides music that enriches the worship of the congregation. Auditions are suggested before joining the Sanctuary Choir. Rehearsals are on Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is an opportunity to sing choral music in the church, with less commitment than the Sanctuary Choir. The group meets twice each month on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-7:45, and sings in 9:00 am worship the following Sunday. Check the online church calendar for the latest schedule. No audition or experience is necessary.

Children’s Choirs

Junior Choristers grades 1-2, Senior Choristers grades 3-5

The Junior and Senior Choristers offer an opportunity for children grades 1-5 to begin their musical experience within the church. These choirs develop basic music skills through the use of singing, listening, and playing instruments. They encourage the enjoyment of music while promoting the expressions of our faith through music. Both choirs have opportunities to lead in worship during the choir year. Junior and Senior Choristers meet on Wednesdays from 4:30 – 5:15 p.m. following “It’s Elementary!” and Tweens.

For more information, please contact Katie Knauer.

Cherub Choir

The Cherub Choir is designed to expose young voices to new sounds and experiences in music. The choir learns to enjoy music and explore basic rhythm and pitch elements as they begin their musical journey! Children who are four and five years old are invited to join us for a joint class from 3:30-4:00. The choir meets from October to December and February through May.

Parent volunteers are always needed.


Westminster Handbells

Westminster Bells is the intermediate to advanced handbell group at Westminster. Rehearsing from 5:40 – 6:30 p.m. each Monday in the Music Activity Room. The group rings Level Three and Four music out of a five-level system. Often employing various mallett and ringing techniques, this group moves quickly and relies on the musicianship of its members to create the best music possible.
