CHURCH SCHOOL SINGERS (Grades K-5)
Meets at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings
Children in grades K through 5 are encouraged to make Church School Singers a part of their regular Church School experience each week. A group of dedicated adult volunteers rotate each week to teach the children our best-loved church and Bible songs, like Jesus Loves Me, Father Abraham, Hallelu Hallelu Hallelujah, and more. These songs were a part of many of our faith formation, teaching us about the church, the Bible, and the world. We want to pass these songs down to the next generation, so each teacher spends time each week making this music part of the children’s lives. All children are welcome!
THE CHANCEL CHOIR (High School and Adults)
Meets from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Thursday evenings
The Choir is Pine Street’s primary choral organization and leads the 11:00 a.m. worship service each Sunday morning from September through May. They also sing at the 8:30 a.m. service on occasion, particularly on Easter, and at other special services such as Christmas Eve Candlelight, Good Friday Tenebrae, etc. In addition, they prepare major musical works for presentation with orchestra … sometimes in a concert setting as part of MAPS (Music at Pine Street) and sometimes during worship. They often collaborate with other area choirs as well. They take on challenging repertoire that enhances worship at Pine Street each week. The Choir is like a family and have a lot of fun together, working on repertoire, vocal technique, musicianship, and spending time together outside of rehearsal as well.
HANDBELL CHOIR (High School and Adults)
Meets from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday evenings
The Handbell Choir plays an eclectic repertoire of handbell music which is both fun and challenging. High Schoolers and adults are warmly welcome to play in this group. It is an evening of good music and good fellowship around the bells. They play in worship about once a month.
