Music

The Music Ministry of Bethlehem

In Biblical times, people gave homage to God with trumpets, harp and lyre, strings, flute and cymbal. Here at Bethlehem, so do we!    

Timeless truths of traditional hymns, fresh contemporary melodies, choral cantatas and little children singing "Jesus Loves Me" - all are important here. 

 All of these melodies resonate with the human spirit while breathing life into the Scriptures that are the foundation of our faith.

  

There is a place for everyone here...

 All are welcome, and encouraged to join and make a joyful noise! No special talents or requirements necessary, just a willingness to serve and honor God through music. This is a place for the entire family.

  The Adult Choral Choir - serves to learn and sing a variety of styles of sacred music to praise our Lord. We describe ourselves as easy-going, but serious, with a wonderful spirit of camaraderie. And don't worry, one does not have to read music to join. We perform weekly at services, with the exception of 4 - 6 weeks in late summer, as well as at special events. Sometimes we even get to do a concert!!! We provide two cantatas annually: at Advent and Lent. We are always looking for more members and would welcome your addition to our ministry. We rehearse weekly on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

  

  Praise Team - We have a number of musicians who share their talents for the 9:30 am Family Service on Sundays.There is truly a wide variety of music for worship, and anyone who would like to join this group, be it as a soloist or with others is welcome. 

•  Special Soloists - The music ministry is always looking for and honored to have special soloists join in on any given Sunday. We have a number of very special musicians in, and outside of our congregation, and you might be one of them! It makes the worship service very special, indeed! So if you play or sing, let's set a date! to glorify God with our gifts!

  • Adult Handbell Choir - The Handbell Choir is a great way for people to get involved in music ministry for those who can’t, don’t or choose not to sing. We make music and praise the Lord with our hands. We have a fun-loving group, which makes rehearsals a great experience, as well as our performances and the occasional get-together.  We have multiple levels of handbell choirs based on music level and experience. Regardless of your music level, or lack thereof, we have a place for you!
