Music is an important part of life at Calvary, both in worship and celebration.  Calvary has various choirs, ensembles, and music teams regularly leading music in worship, enhancing our worship experience and glorifying God.In addition to worship, our music ministry team hosts special events throughout the year.  Opportunities are available for people of all ages and talents.
 

Contemporary Ensembles

The contemporary ensembles are an important part of the music ministry at Calvary, providing contemporary Christian music at worship. Each group rehearses on its own, selecting and preparing music that complements the Scripture readings, and with which they are comfortable offering. Calvary welcomes vocalists and instrumentalists who can participate both in contemporary Christian music ensembles, as well as provide solos.
 

Celebration Ringers

Celebration Ringers play Calvary's five-octave Schulmerich hand bells, and occasionally the three-octave set of Malmark Choir chimes. The members have a wide range of backgrounds and musical abilities, but all share the common goal of offering their musical best to the Lord. The group rehearses Tuesday nights at 6 pm during the program year. The ability to read music is not required, but helps. If you feel the urge to swing large metal objects that make noise, under adult supervision, there's a place for you in Celebration Ringers!
 

Alleluia Choir

The Alleluia Choir is open to ages 15 to 115! The group rehearses and sings together from September through Pentecost on Wednesday nights at 7 pm (7:30 pm during lent,) sings two Sundays a month, along with seasonal services, and an occasional Saturday service. If you have been considering becoming a part of the music ministry, this would be an excellent place to get involved!
 

Cherub Choir

The Cherub Choir develops basic choral singing in younger children. They rehearse Sunday mornings from 10:15-10:40 am, singing at worship services about once a month during the school year. They also participate in seasonal services and other special events.
