GALILEE MUSIC MINISTRY
At Galilee, we worship using a liturgy, and the words of the liturgy are carried by music: when they are set to music, words are easier to remember. We use a variety of musical styles in our worship, from traditional hymnody to contemporary praise songs. Now, as we welcome members from other countries, we also seek to reflect those traditions in the music we offer in the worship service.
Organists: Raymond Nottidge and Tim Rand
The Galilee Choir enjoys singing various styles of anthems and songs, leading the congregation in song, and interpreting the Word through music. The choir is currently made up of adults, but also welcomes youth of middle school age and older to join – no experience is needed. We are all learning and have lots of fun doing it! One of the highlights of the year is the joy of singing the Hallelujah Chorus on Easter Sunday.
The Galilee Choir rehearses on Wednesdays, 7:15-8:30 p.m., and sings during worship on two or three Sundays per month.
Director: Jo Ann French
BELLS OF GALILEE
The Bells of Galilee soothe and delight our worship with the sweet sound of handbells. All are welcome to join the group and to learn to work together musically in this unique way. The handbell players also have occasion to add their sound to our hymn singing, and they also participate in BellFest, a gathering of several area handbell choirs.
The Bells of Galilee rehearse on Wednesdays, 6-7 p.m., and play on one Sunday per month.
