Chancel 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.


Sounds of Praise - Directed by: Betsy Bone

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!!


Church 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.


Grace 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 - Directed by: Betsy Bone

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 the month.


Heavenly 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 p.m.


Genesis - Directed by: Betsy Bone

Genesis, our children's handbell choir, was started in the fall of 2007. This ensemble is open to all 3rd - 5th grade students. Our practices are held on Wednesdays, 5:30 - 6:30, immediately following our Kid Club activites.



Sanctuary - Directed by: Sam Thurmond

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!.


Kids Club Choir - Directed by: Aloma Bratek, Accompanist: Joan Grace

The children of WPC make a joyful noise as they sing and share in worship.

Our energetic K-5th graders gather every Wed., 3:30-5:30, as part of our Kids Club recreation, choir, and bible study. Covenant Choir, our upper elementary age group, sing from 4:00-4:45, and Primary Praise, our K-2 (or 3rd ) graders, sing from 4:45-5:30. Our schedule follows the Seminole County School Calendar. Both choirs sing on the first (11:00 worship) and third (8:30 worship) Sunday of each month. During the month of December we unite to sing a Christmas program. Summer music camps are offered each year as a way to learn and explore. Preschool age children make up our Cherub Choir. They practice for 20 minutes during their Sunday school hour of 9:45-10:45.

Our mission is to provide musical ways for our children to share their talents with God.
All children are invited and welcomed to join!.
