The sanctuary choir

The sanctuary choir sings each week for Sunday worship as well as for other special services throughout the year. The group presents at least one major work each year along with Lessons & Carols for Christmas.


The choir sings a variety of repertoire including classical, traditional worship music, spirituals, contemporary praise music, and international music.  The choir is sensitive to the denominational decision to use inclusive language whenever possible. 


Students from the universities join the choir each year on choir scholarship from the church. Instrumentalists often join the choir as accompanists for anthems as well as perform solos as well. 


A background in music is not a requirement to become a member of the sanctuary choir. Individuals with a desire to serve God and who are willing to make a commitment to the success of the group are welcome and encouraged to visit a choir rehearsal. 


The Sanctuary Choir meets Wednesday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Contact Lenora McCroskey, Director of Music, for more information at (940) 566-7043, dulcianne@me.com or by calling the church office, (940) 382-8815.

Grace notes handbell choir


Affectionately called “The Ding-a-lings,” the bell choir meets weekly on Wednesday from 5:45-6:45 p.m. The group plays regularly for services as a solo group and as an accompanying group for the various choirs, hymns and other service music.


Reading music is not a requirement for membership, but a solid commitment to the group is necessary for a satisfying musical experience for all. There is no age limit for membership. Young and not-so-young participate enthusiastically.


Led by Lenora McCroskey, the group uses a three-octave set of Schulmerich handbells. For more information, contact Lenora McCroskey, or the church office, 940-382-8815.
