Music Ministries

“Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!” Psalm 95:1

We invite you to experience the music at Aldersgate. Music is vital to the worship of our Lord through blended offerings including both traditional and contemporary favorites.  Aldersgate maintains a long tradition of musical excellence through our choir, ensembles, and handbell choir.

No matter your music background, we encourage you to participate in our music ministry if you feel led. To learn more about the opportunities in music at Aldersgate, contact us below.

Music Opportunities at Aldersgate

Adult Choir

The Adult Choir sings each Sunday during worship. The 20-member choir is a non-audition choir that meets and rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m. in the choir room or the sanctuary. Frequently the Adult Choir presents a secular program to our congregation and the community.

Handbell Choir

Our handbell choir, “Celebrate,” currently has 14 members and rehearses at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings, across from the Pathfinders room. Reading music is necessary for playing in the handbell choir, and if you would like to learn to play, we’ll teach you!


Many choir members are involved in solo work and participate in small  ensembles. These groups meet at different times during the week. We believe that small group and solo work strengthens our choir musically. Working in smaller groups also encourages camaraderie and allows members to become better acquainted personally.

Contemporary/Praise Team

Newly formed, our Praise Team leads congregational singing with contemporary songs and hymns during Worship.
