Worship services depend upon music for much of their meaning and beauty. All music prepared by the choirs, organist, handbell ringers, soloists and other instrumentalists serve the goal of manifesting and responding to the glory of God.
For details on choir practice times and locations, please see the Calendar.
The Chancel Choir is the primary choir for the worship services. Special music services are held during Advent and Lent. For those services, instrumentalists often accompany the choir from our congregation or from the Charlotte musical community.
Performing a wide variety of music and employing advanced techniques, the Selwyn Bells rehearse regularly in the Handbell Room located off the Covenant / Choir room in the Bowman Building.
The Junior Choirs are for children in grades K-5. These choirs meet during the school year.
Occasionally, special choirs are formed for specific services. On Rally Day, at the beginning of the school year, we hold a Jazz Music service, using a jazz band for accompaniment. On Mother’s Day, we invite all mothers, daughters and grandmothers to join the women of the choir for the Sunday service. During the summer when the Chancel Choir is on hiatus, a special invitation is extended to our congregation to participate in worship. Sharing our gifts with others in worship of God and Christ is always at the center of our mission.
