Choirs & Schedules

Ta-Dah!

Music has the lion's share of Wednesday night activities at Northminster.  Between dinner at 5:30 and when the chancel choir exits rehearsal at 9 p.m., music spills out of door after door.  The sounds of little voices, big voices, organ, piano, bells, drums and tamborines, and, often, entire orchestras, combine with conversations in small groups and classes throughout the church.  It is so active on Wednesdays, we offer homework help for K-5. 

In addition to the adult choir and ensembles, the youth choirs have a tradition of making regular contributions to services.  Besides musicianship, all voices are reminded how music supports worship and interprets the Word in a special way.

Get your kids involved in a choir and, while they're singing, you can go to Parents with a Passion or perhaps, a Bible study.  Join a choir yourself with , childcare and homework all finished.

For more information on how to join a choir, contact Director of Music Ministries, John Wright at
