There are many talented faithful musicians involved with the music program at Aldersgate United Methodist and their dedication shows through their service and stewardship.
The highlight of our program is our annual Christmas Cantata and Easter Sunday programs where many folks from throughout the church who are not regular members join together to create truly memorable services.
Chancel Choir: Our rehearsal day is Wednesday at 7:30PM with productive rehearsals that are focused on excellence with a healthy dose of humor. Member musicianship grows over time.
The Chancel Choir performs music ranging in styles from Contemporary and Gospel to Classical. They range in ability from beginners to accomplished well-trained musicians. They perform every Sunday (except the second Sunday of the month when the bells play), September through June.
Canterbury Handbell Choir: The handbell choir rehearses on Wednesday from 6:30-7:30PM. The Bell Choir performs a wide variety of music as well and plays the second Sunday of every month September through June.
Praise Band: The praise band leads our 1st service on Sunday Mornings, a lively, vibrant and welcoming music-focused worship, featuring your favorite Contemporary Christian standards, reworking of familiar pop standards and the occasional original song. Sing, clap and even dance along with music from Chris Tomlin, James Taylor, Matt Redman, Sarah Groves, The Beatles, Amy Grant, and so many more!
The Praise Band always welcomes new musicians and singers: practices (and auditions) are on Thursdays at 7:30PM. For more info email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Children’s Choir is forming and will be part of our children’s Sunday morning as there will be music time in between Kid’s Club and Sunday School each Sunday. They will be learning a combination of praise and traditional christian music and it is our hope they will perform at least once a quarter.
