Music at First Church

Music has always been a big part of our shared experience.
We welcome all ages and abilities to our ensembles, and we look forward to hearing all kinds of voices during Worship!

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is First Church's primary vocal music ensemble, singing multiple times per month during worship.

The Choir rehearses before worship at 9:00am in the Choir Room, just outside the Sanctuary.


We welcome all voices to the group - no previous singing experience is necessary, and the pieces selected are accessible to all ages and abilities!

Campanella Ringers

First Church also is home to a five-octave handbell choir, named for the Italian word Campanella, meaning "little bell". The handbell choir adds special music to worship multiple times throughout the year, and in the past even traveled to other churches and handbell conferences to perform.

Follow our Facebook page for announcements of the next Handbell performance!
