We Make a Joyful Noise! Join Us!

The Chancel Choir consists of adult vocalists of all ages.  This year we will be starting rehearsals in October for our Christmas Cantata to be preformed December 20th at the 10:30am worship service.

 Please email Kris Bartelt at fdlpresbyterian.org if you would like more information.

Our Handbell Choir, ‘Bells Amore’ director is Joanne Marchionda.  It was started in 1999 when the bells were purchased through a Memorial Fund from a member.   Hand chimes were added a few years ago, and our choir is now a three octave bell and chime choir.  It performs for the 10:30 church service one Sunday of each month. They also participate on special occasions with the Chancel Choir in a Random Ring Processional as well as Christmas and Easter services. Occasional community performances are also available to us.

If you have any interest in learning, or have played before, please don’t hesitate to join us.  Practices are on Wednesdays at 5:45 pm, starting the Wednesday after Labor Day.  If you have any questions, please call Joanne Marchionda at 922-3993.

The Angel Choir at First Presbyterian is made up of children from 3 to 5 years of age and is directed by Cheryl Clarenbach, who is assisted by Alyssa Sabel. Our Angels practice on Sunday mornings at the beginning of the Sunday School hour from 9:15-9:30. We try to learn a variety of songs each year, including old classics, songs that relate to our Sunday School lessons, and new songs set to tunes we already know.
