Welcome! There is a ministry designed for everyone!

           
           
 

   

The Adult Choirs of Advent Lutheran Church include Chapel Choir and the Chancel Choir. The Chapel Choir is composed of men and sings at the 8:30 worship during their performance season. The Chancel Choir is the largest choir at Advent consisting of 25 SATB voices and sings at the 11:00 AM service.

Both choirs combine seasonally for major vocal works such as Handel’s “Messiah,” John Rutter’s “Requiem,” among others. Outside of the choirs’ dedication to Advent, singers join with various church choirs in the area for special events such as cantatas and key holiday services, lifting their voices in praising our Lord and Savior.

 


MORE THAN A SONG CHOIR (Grades 6-12)
More Than A Song Choir involves the youth of the parish in Grades 6-12. More Than A Song Choir members enjoy working on a variety of styles of music, which express their faith in many different ways. The choir often incorporates additional instruments and movement to add additional dimension to their expression of faith.

More Than A Song rehearses Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:00 p.m. which compliments Advent’s Youth Group activities which often commence immediately after choir. This choir sings SAB or SATB music one Sunday per month, alternating between the 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. worship services. Weekly rehearsals are held in the Youth Choir room on the second floor near the church library. More Than A Song participates in special worship services throughout the year, including the Hanging of the Greens and Cantate Sunday Service.

They also help to lead worship in the 8:00 p.m. Communion Christmas Eve Service, where they are joined by choir alumni who have returned home to share in worship. Many choir members form the nucleus of Advent's Summer Musical / Coffee House program, a multi-generational presentation in early August.

JUNIOR CHOIR (Grades 2-5)
Advent’s Junior Choir is comprised of young singers in Grades 2-5 who rehearse every Sunday from 12-12:40 p.m. This rehearsal time works well for families who simply stay a little longer after our 11:00 a.m. worship service and enjoy some coffee and social time while their children are at choir. Members of the choir learn about and share the faith through singing, movement, and games and are encouraged to share God’s love through the joy of music.



The Junior Choir rehearses in the Youth Choir room on the second floor near the church library. This choir sings one Sunday per month, alternating between the 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services. It participates in special worship services, including the Hanging of the Greens and Cantate Sunday. The choir also leads worship in our Family Christmas Eve Service, where young instrumentalists and singers provide prelude music as well as the anthems.

CHERUB CHOIR (Ages 3-7)
The Cherub Choir is a ministry for children ages 3 – 7, helping to prepare youngsters for singing to God’s glory and participating in worship. Experimenting with instruments, singing fun songs and practicing pitch and rhythm are among the experiences that are shared.

The Cherubs rehearse Sunday mornings from 9:30 – 9:45 a.m. in the Cherub Choir room adjacent to the Nursery on the lower level of the Sunday School wing. Cherubs sing once a month during worship plus Hanging of the Greens, the Family Christmas Eve Service and Cantate Sunday. The support of parents is very much appreciated.
