Chancel Choir

Chancel Choir

The Chanel Choir is a dedicated, fun group that loves God and loves to sing. Jamie Jones is our choir director and Zach Bowyer is organist. Both are highly talented.

Is that not a gorgeous group? We usually don’t have that many empty chairs, but I think someone was expecting you to visit. Come join us. Hey, by the way:  one of the people in this picture was named Best Musician in Caldwell County for 2017. Can you guess which one?

Okay, now we’re getting serous. Jamie must have stepped up to the podium and Zach is playing. We do some very interesting music – both contemporary and traditional. Sometimes we really jazz it up.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.”
Psalm 100:1

Or, as Jamie says, when in doubt, sing loud.

Besides singing in the chancel – that’s a fancy word for the area around the altar – we also go on road trips and have fun outings. This is a great part of the country for that because there are so many beautiful places to choose from.

This is a mother and daughter that sing in our choir. Both are great singers. The mother loves to sing swing, and – get this – sometimes she sings it in church. I told you, we like to jazz things up!

The Choir practices on Wednesday nights at 7 pm in the Choir Room, which is located at the end of the hall on the second floor of the Education Building . (Same floor as the offices.) Come join us! For more information, contact choir director Jamie Jones.
