Our Music


The Vocal Choir 

Our minister of music, Ann Whitman, has been active in music for a long time, plays several instruments, and has performed in countless musical groups since high school. She has been a church organist from the age of 16.  She especially enjoys the gift of playing "by ear" songs and hymns of special meaning. She leads or is a member of several musical groups in Delaware - thumb vocal-choir-3

Sweet Adeline International, The First State Harmonettes which she Directs, and is a tenor in the Bayside 4 in addition to being our Choir Director. So if you are interested in singing, our volunteer choir is a great place to get started and to be. It practices every Sunday after worship service, September thru June. Our singers love to use their voices to the glory of God. 

The Handbell Choir

Our Handbell Choir is intergenerational and plays in worship about monthly during the school year.  The choir rehearses Mondays at 6PM.  If you are interested in ringing, please contact the conductor, Janice Caldwell.

Carillon Dedication Plaque-1963

John Mitchell Delivering New Carillon-2018

Since at least 1963 the Church's belfry has hosted a carillon. On Christmas Eve, 2017, the original carillon gave up the ghost and was silent.







 On April 20th, a newly purchased carillon arrived and John Mitchell unloaded it at the Church.
