Children & Adult Choirs

Choirs

From the opening to the close of worship, music guides us through praise, prayer, scripture, and thanksgiving. The congregation participates with the choir in singing hymns and responses from a variety of styles and time periods, reminding us that we join in musical praise with people from different churches and cultures throughout the world.

Adult Choir

The Adult Choir is a multigenerational group (high school students to older adults) of dedicated singers who lead us musically in worship every week September through June.  They rehearse on Thursday evenings from 8:00-9:30 pm and on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am.  The choir sings a range of sacred music from plainsong through modern Christian music.  All are invited to join, regardless of musical ability.  Please contact our Director of Music Ministries, Megan Coiley, at music@pennpres.org, for more details or for questions.
 

Bell Choir

The Handbell Choir welcomes men and women of varied experience to join them in rehearsal on Thursday evenings, 6:45-8:00 p.m. They play about once a month in worship and occasionally accompany the Choir and congregation on anthems and hymns.

Children’s Choirs

The Gloria Deo Choir, grades 6-12, rehearses on Thursday evenings, 6:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m in the Sanctuary. This choir sings once a month in worship and presents a musical each year in the spring.

The Genesis Choir, grades 2-5, rehearses on Sundays at 6:30 pm in Upper Titus. This choir sings once a month in worship and joins the older Gloria Deo Choir for the spring musical.

The Cherub Choir, 4-year-olds to 1st grade, rehearses on Sunday mornings during the worship service. This age group stays in worship until just before the sermon through Time with Children and then leaves to participate in Cherub Choir. They return to their parents for the close of worship. This choir sings frequently in worship with special presentations for Christmas and Palm Sunday.
