Sanctuary Choir
Open to all adults and youth. The Sanctuary Choir performs weekly during the Sunday services and provides special music throughout the year. Of special significance are the annual Christmas cantatas, combining the choir with a variety of instrumentalists and dramatists. The Sanctuary Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings after the weekly program hour.

Handbell Choir
Open to all youth and adults. This ensemble continues a long tradition of excellence in English handbell ringing. They perform regularly in worship, presenting handbell anthems and also accompanying soloists and choirs. They rehearse on Wednesday evenings.

Men’s and Women’s Ensembles
Open to men and women of all ages. These ensembles perform unison, two, three and four-part music, both accompanied and a cappella. They enjoy a rich fellowship in addition to their musical harmonies. They bring music to Sunday worship services, and also receive invitations to perform for functions outside the church.

A spin-off group from the Sanctuary Choir that performs choir anthems for some 8:30 worship services. Their rehearsal time is the same as that for the Sanctuary Choir.
