About Advent’s Music

Advent is proud of the many ways singers and instrumentalist use their musical gifts to provide a rich, uplifting spiritual presence in weekly worship and at special church and community events throughout the year. Here are some of the ways YOU are invited to share the joy of music at Advent:


Advent Adult Choir  
Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 pm from September – May. The choir sings during Sunday service primarily on the first and third Sundays of each month. The choir also sings at special services on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and Christmas Eve. Choir is a great ensemble for all vocal skill levels and the schedule is very accessible for those with hectic lifestyles. New choir members are always welcome!

This women’s ensemble shares contemporary and traditional music in worship once monthly (usually the second Sunday) and on special occasions. Rehearsals take place Wednesday evenings after Adult Choir rehearsal.

Gospel and contemporary worship music is the focus of this all male ensemble that shares the gift of song in worship periodically on Sundays as well as at special services. This particular ensemble is meant for singers skilled at sight reading and solo part singing. Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings before Adult Choir rehearsal.
