First Christian Church has a strong commitment to music. The church enjoys and supports music in a variety of fashions. The church has a strong choir, a handbell choir, an excellent organ and great church musicians. The church also sponsors community musical events in the church sanctuary and opens its doors to community groups teaching music.
The Chancel Choir represents one part of a vibrant music ministry at First Christian Church.
Presenting music representative of many musical periods and styles, the choir strives, above all, to let the meaning of the music shine through.
Open to all who wish to sing, rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m, and are filled with music-making and fellowship.
Bruce Marston is the musical director.
The church has an excellent organ and has had, over the years, many of the area's finest organists on staff. Our current church organist is Beth Fulks.
The church recently restarted a handbell choir which regularly performs during church service.
The bell choir is lead by Margaret Shields. This is a volunteer effort.
Individuals of wide-ranging music ability help create an amazing sound that is only possible with a bell choir.
The music is played on Schulmerich bells, 4 octaves.
