Make Music With Us!

We love music at The Reformed Church! All are invited to join one of our five vocal choirs and six handbell choirs, organized according to age and skill level.

Each group rehearses weekly (see times below) and performs on select Sunday mornings from September through May, as well as in seasonal Sunday afternoon concerts and special services. The Chancel Choir performs weekly during the program year.
