At Bethel, our weekly worship gatherings are an expression of who we are as a diverse community of faith. Our music styles are varied. You will hear the music of our 15-Rank Moller pipe organ, our worship Ensemble, sacred choral anthems, timeless hymns of the faith, blended with energized, or meditative worship songs of the church today.
We believe in engaging the gifts of all people, and there is a place for you in our music ministry! For more information regarding any of our music programs, contact Sue Correll, Director of Music (sueellen.correll
From the first note of our opening gathering music to the sending hymn of the day, our Ensemble is the primary music leader for our worship, engaging our congregation in praise. Be sure to check out our CD recording, “One Name”, released in December 2014. This reflection of our music and heart for worship can be purchased through the church office.
The Ensemble is a very committed group of singers ranging from high school age through adults. This non-auditioned group is open to anyone with a heart for singing and music leadership. Rehearsals are weekly on Thursdays from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. This ensemble sings most Sundays in worship and for special worship gatherings throughout the year. We are often called upon for music leadership beyond our own church gatherings at synod and conference events such as “Power in the Spirit” and the Virginia Synod Assembly.
Our children’s choirs give our elementary school students an opportunity to serve their church, and a chance to minister through music. When children sing scripture, they remember it for a lifetime. Our children’s choirs meet periodically to plan for and minister during special worship gatherings throughout the school year.
