Voices on the Hill

The adult choir at Gravel Hill performs a variety of inspiring anthems, from Brooklyn Tabernacle to soaring ballads by today's top sacred choral composers. The ensemble sings every Sunday morning in the 8:00 Traditional Service. Additionally, this group offers a dramatic choral work every year for Christmas and Easter as a ministry to the entire community. No audition is required, and new members age 16 or older are welcomed year-round.

The Praise Team

The praise team ministers through contemporary Christian worship music during the C.L.I.C.K. and The Walk services every Sunday. Christian radio favorites and popular choruses are blended into a heartfelt and meaningful hour of worship. An experienced live band compliments the vocal talents of the worship team. Auditions are available by contacting Joyce Lochinger via the church office at 838-4721.

The Hilltop Ringers

Excited to share their ministry, the Hilltop Ringers are a medium-sized bell choir that combines the talents of youth and adults alike. They add a special musical touch to the Traditional Service on special occasions. This group continues to grow in its skill and depth under the leadership of Barbara Miller-Nelligan. Anyone interested should contact the church office at 838-4721.

The Kidz Choir

This group is for kids 5-years-old through fifth grade. Choral leaders include Joyce Lochinger,  Sherry Mettley and Diane Kupstas. This group practices every Wednesday during the school year from 6:00-6:30 p.m. in the Choir Room.  The Kidz Choir sings one song during the 8:00 a.m. Sanctuary Service and the 10:30 a.m. Walk Service on the third Sunday of every month.  They also participate in special musical worship throughout the year, including the Easter Cantata and the 5;00 p.m. Family Kids' Christmas Eve Service.
