Adults and young people are welcome to participate in the music of the adult choir. The choir meets weekly on Tuesday evenings for practice at 6:15 p.m. from about September thru Pentecost.  During the summer, some of the musicians gather to make music and work on new music.  Interested?  The Choir sings regularly at a weekend Mass, and usually is at 10:30 A.M. Mass.  On Sunday mornings at 9:30 all musicians gather to warmup and prepare for the 10:30 Mass.  We have been rotating so to sing at the other Masses also.

In September every year we have been joining in with 2 other churches for a Gospel Sing at Kumler United Methodist Church.

During the season of Advent, we gather with other churches, rotating spaces and coming together for our annual Advent Service of music.  We invite churches on the northend to participate.

Many have passed thru our portals over the years and have shared their joy of music and singing with the choir which ministers to the whole community.  Our present musicians include:  Deanna Kettelkamp (choir director), Teri Fleckenstein, Kay McCloskey, Rose Morris, Vanessa Myers, Frank Porovecchio, Della Santos, Gusta Schuchmann (cantor), Vickie Stamper (cantor), Joy Stillwell, Meghan Ramirez (cantor), Sr. Mary Ellen (cantor), Phyllis Roate (Cantor), George Jirgal (cantor), Richard Myers (guitar), Ryan Fleckenstein (guitar/rhythm), Bryan Ralph (guitar), Andrea Madonia (mandolin), Lonnie Wooden (rhythm), Frank Mounce (rhythm), Seth Faloon (rhythm), Jordan Best (rhythm), all of whom have been very dedicated and as much a 'small church community.'

Come sing with us!
