The Handbell Choir provides music for special occasions throughout the year and is always looking to expand its membership. Performances may include choir or congregational accompaniment, or group pieces for seasons, such as Christmas.
VOCAL AND INSTRUMENTAL MUSICIANS
Instrumental musicians, of all ages, share their time and talent for special occasions throughout the year, often accompanying the Senior Choir or providing special music for services.
Music is an important part of worship at Our Savior’s. The Senior Choir prepares special music to share with the congregation three Sundays a month at either the 8 a.m. or the 10:30 a.m. service. The Senior Choir has between 25-30 members of all ages and practices for about an hour on Wednesday nights, September to May, in the balcony. New members are always welcome.
The S.O.S (Saints of Our Savior’s) Band is a group of professional musicians that volunteer their time and talent to enhance the worship service. They help lead worship the fourth Sunday of the month called “Festive Fourth.”
SOUNDS LIKE LOVE CHOIR
The Sounds Like Love Choir is designed for high school youth that enjoy singing. It meets in the fall to prepare for a group concert with 400-500 other high school youth from all over the Midwest. The second weekend in November the group travels to Minneapolis where they rehearse with a well-known musician, perform during two worship services, and give two concerts on Sunday. During this weekend, they also participate in a Bible study and attend a special concert performed by a guest artist. The Sounds Like Love Choir joins with the Senior Choir during worship services throughout the year.
SUNDAY SCHOOL MUSIC
The Sunday School children perform a Christmas program and share music in worship at other special occasions throughout the year.
HIGH SCHOOL PRAISE BAND
The High School Praise Band offers high school students the opportunity to use a variety of instruments in worship, sometimes accompanied by the Senior Choir. The band uses the musical gifts (and instruments) God provides, to create unique musical opportunities and experiences.
