There are many opportunities to serve in the music ministries of LHPC.
The Chancel Choir is seated at the 11:00 a.m. worship service and helps to lead worship through song. The Praise Band is the ensemble that leads the music for Praise On High at the 9:00 a.m. service. The Handbell Choir rings a three-octave set of bells and periodically rings during the worship services. There are many opportunities for musicians, both vocal and instrumental, either to accompany the Chancel choir or provide special music for worship services.
If you are interested in participating in any portion of the LHPC music ministries, please contact church office.
The Chancel Choir is a volunteer choral ensemble that provides musical leadership for our 11:00 a.m. worship service. They sing service music and anthems and help to lead the congregation in the singing of hymns. Currently this choir is performing larger choral works during Advent and Lent and are working to expand to a fall and spring concert of favorite anthems as well! This group currently includes 20 members and is always looking for new voices.
The Praise Band is an auditioned group that provides musical leadership for the 9:00 a.m. worship service, Praise on High. This group leads worship with current contemporary music, creatively incorporating hymns and classic praise songs. Currently with 5 musicans and 4-5 vocalists, the praise band is open to welcoming new musicians and singers as opportunities become available. This ministry is also supported through sound and video technology assistance, offering more opportunities for participation.
Our Chancel Handbell group provides special music several times a year to enhance the worship experience at LHPC. We lead worship though a variety of music, both classical and contemporary. Although playing Handbells looks tough, you don’t have to be a musician to participate. Handbells provides an opportunity to learn to read music or sharpen your skills if you already know how to read. The group currently numbers about 10 members and we are in need of a few more ringers.
If you are interested in joining the Chancel Choir, in auditioning for the Praise Band or in being a part of the Chancel Handbell group, please contact church office.
