The Chapel Singers
Singing small masterworks and challenging anthems, The Chapel Singers are an auditioned group of singers chosen from the active participants in the music ministry.

Small Groups and Ensembles
Whether playing an instrument, singing a solo, participating in a small ensemble, creating a dance, or preparing art in worship, all persons are encouraged to offer their talents to God in worship. If you play an instrument, dance, sign, act or sing, please contact Matthew Robinson to find your place in the church's music and arts ministry.
The Art Gallery
Displaying the talents of our congregation and beyond, the church art gallery offers churchgoers the opportunity to see God in the visual arts. The Art Gallery is led and directed by church members and rotated on a seasonal basis.
Careful thought is given to the audio and visual needs for worship. Two of our worship spaces have screens which are used to lead worship. Each worship space has a sound system to enhance the worship experience. Special talents are needed in these areas. Overseen by Matthew Robinson, interested persons are auditioned for this group just as for any other ensemble. If you film and operate a camera, we also create our own videos for worship.
