Choir - Directed by: Betsy Bone
The Chancel Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings, 7:15 - 8:45pm,
in the choir room. This choir is primarily made up of adults, but
is open to any College or High School age student who would like
to participate. Our primary job is to lead worship at the 11:00
service. There are three occasions when we lead worship at both
the 8:30 and 11:00 hours: when we sing our Christmas Cantata, Music
Appreciation Sunday and on Easter. We also participate in the Ash
Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Christmas Eve services.
On occasion, we may be part of a Music Department Fellowship Dinner
Concert hosted by the Deacons of the church. We welcome all voices!
It is here that we join our voices and learn how to sing beautifully
God's praises together. Our nursery is open for choir members requiring
child care during rehearsal.

Did you play an instrument when you were in high school and college?
Have you ever wished you could still play in an ensemble? We welcome
you to dust off the cobwebs from your instrument and join this merry
band of musicians. We have middle and senior high players along
with adults from all walks of life involved in this ensemble. We
rehearse as needed, and enjoy accompanying the congregation on hymns
prepare an Anthem or Offertory piece for special services. Sooooo,
feel free to dust off the cobwebs and get your lips back in shape!!
Our rehearsals, when scheduled, are on Sunday afternoons from 3
- 4:25 in the sanctuary. Come join us!!
Organ - Played by: Gary Galloway
Wekiva Presbyterian Church is blessed to have a 3 manual, (keyboard)
Allen Renaissance Organ to lead us in worship each Sunday. It was
installed in January 2000, and Diane Bish gave the dedicatory recital.
The specification includes 63 stops (equal to about 75 pipe ranks).
The organ utilizes digital sampling which helps produce a bright
clear "pipe organ" sound even though there are no pipes.
We are often asked where the pipes are installed on our organ.
Notes - Directed by: Joan Grace
The Grace Notes are an English Handbell choir and have been ringing
at Wekiva since 1987. They ring five octaves of Schulmerich Handbells
and three octaves of choir chimes. This group consists of twelve
adults who ring both services the second Sunday of each month. They
have also rung at weddings and various community affairs.

Mission:FAITH is Wekiva's Youth choir. It is open to all 6th - 12th
grade students, members or non-members. Our rehearsals are on Sunday
evenings (6:00 - 7:00 pm) and are sandwiched between our Middle
School and High School Youth Clubs. We prepare a variety of music
to lead worship, and enjoy adding instrumentation of all sorts.
We begin each year with a "Retreat" where we get a jump-start
on our music and making lasting friendships. This ensemble leads
worship at both the 8:30 and 11:00 services on the 4th Sunday of
Vibrations - Directed by: Betsy Bone
Heavenly Vibrations was formed in 2007 to give adult, middle and
high school beginning ringers a place to acquire ringing skills.
This intermediate handbell choir is fed by our Genesis graduates.
We ring three to four times a year for worship. If you dream of
ringing handbells, or have only rung for a short time, this is the
handbell choir for you. We practice on Monday evenings, 6:15 - 7:15

our Kid Club activites.

Sanctuary is a music group with singers and band members (bass,
guitar, drums, keyboard) from 6th grade to college years or slightly
beyond. These youth enjoy singing and playing music from hymn tunes
to modern Christian folk/pop/rock music. You'll often hear the songs
we choose to sing being played on the local Christian soft rock
radio station. This group leads worship one Sunday a month (usually
the first Sunday in the month). Sanctuary is currently in a period of transition and is looking for people to join this group. If you are interested, please contact the church office. We would love for you to sing with us!.
