We are blessed to have a versatile Minister of Music, Eileen Straub, who plays piano, organ and flute. We are also blessed to have a number of other gifted musicians in our church family. Matt Stone directs the UPCoW Chorus, made up of children ages 5 through 13.
Several members of the church provide solos and duets, and we are thankful to have both male and female soloists who provide Anthems and Offertories in a variety of genres, including gospel, classical, and praise worship.
The Marion Boyd Handbell Choir began performing on Easter Sunday, 2020. Marion Boyd (1921-2019) purchased handbells for both adult and children’s handbell choirs and led the choirs, for many years. When she could no longer lead, the choirs disbanded. We were very pleased to see renewed interest in the bells and to have the opportunity for the handbell choir named in Marion’s honor to debut on Easter Sunday. One of her child ringers is now an adult ringer! The ringers rehearse on Sundays following the worship service.
If you have a gift for music as a singer or as an instrumentalist, Eileen Straub would like to talk with you! There is a place in our music ministry for anyone who wants to participate.
