The mission of the music ministry at Community Christian is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music and song. With a philosophy of ministering to the congregation rather than performing for the congregation, the musicians of our program enrich our weekly worship services based on the motto “We Sing to Worship”. We encourage excellence, teamwork, commitment, creative development and spiritual growth. The music ministry at Community Christian focuses on providing opportunities for all musicians who desire to be a part of the music ministry regardless of experience, age, talent or instrument. The only requirement is a desire to serve the Lord faithfully and joyfully.
THE RINGING DISCIPLES
The Ringing Disciples Handbell choir performs the third Sunday of the month, September through May, at the 9:00 am service. The Ringing Disciples perform with five octaves of handbells in various styles of music and regularly collaborate with the Chancel Choir for special occasion selections at Christmas, Easter and Music Sunday. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. Judy Wingate, Director.
The Chancel Choir enjoys a rich legacy at Community Christian. Volunteer members rehearse to provide a selective repertoire of religious music in various musical styles, both a cappella and accompanied by various instruments. From baroque to bluegrass, the Chancel Choir proclaims the Christian message! The group is composed of high school youth and adults and rehearses Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Judy Wingate, Director
