Immanuel is filled with many talented individuals in the music realm, but you can never have too many, and we would love for you to join us! We have several venues in which you are welcome to share your gifts, just choose one and contact Jeanine Pitts if you have any questions or when you're ready to get started.
Our choir is a friendly, silly bunch that love to have fun worshipping while maintaining reverence in each service we participate in. We are a family of singers always looking to welcome new members. We choose music based on liturgical season as well as difficulty levels and musicians available. All voice parts are welcome, auditions and solos are not a requirement. The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm and again for a quick warm-up at 10:20am on Sunday mornings before worship.
Similar to the beautiful handbells often seen around Christmas time, the Immanuel Chimers (affectionately known as the "Dingalings") love worshipping with their choir chime skills periodically. Some of our most memorable pieces have been performed at Christmas and Easter. You don't need to read music to play, only know your right hand from your left hand, we'll teach you the rest.
Praise Team Choir and Band
Now and then, our regular choir takes a Sunday off and a smaller group leads our service music. Any worship leaders or musicians who would like to be part of a small group of people to sing or play are invited to join us during these times. Ideally, you would know how to read music and study a bit on your own to learn new pieces assigned for the occasion.
Do you play an instrument or sing outside of a choir best? Maybe you'd like to share your gift with our congregation on an irregular or as-needed basis? Immanuel's music ministry welcomes new musicians with open arms; we can't wait to see what God has done in you through your talent! If you need special accommodations (music stands, microphones, etc.) please be sure to mention that when you speak with Jeanine Pitts.
