Music at Ascension
Music & Other Liturgical Art Forms at Ascension
Ascension has long been a place where music plays an important role in enhancing the worship service of our community. The following are just some examples of the opportunities that can be found at Ascension Lutheran Church.
The Chancel Choir
The “Choir,” as it is most commonly known, is made up of both male and female singers joining their voices in praise to God and God’s holy word. Approximately 20 singers comprise the choir and sing in 4-part harmony at all weekly services from early September until early June each church year. Usually, two special services, one during the Christmas season, and one during Easter are presented during the normal Sunday worship services. The choir meets weekly on Sundays following the 10:15 am worship service and welcomes all new singers. Prior choir singing is not a prerequisite and all voices are welcome.
The “Alleluia Ringers” Bell Choir
The “Bells,” under the very capable leadership of retired music teacher, Marilyn Stoner, is comprised of 12-15 persons and meets weekly on Monday evenings from 7 until 8:00 PM. The bell choir plays during worship services once each month and at special services. This choir also participates at local and regional bell conferences during the year. No prior musical training is required for this organization.
