Williams Bay Lutheran Church has been blessed with a new set of 3 octave Malmark Handbells to enhance our Music Ministry. We recently presented a fund-raising concert for our San Jose Mission Church in Beloit. The Handbell Choir usually shares their music once per month (September through May) at our 9:30 AM Worship Service. The Handbell Choir also rings in our annual Christmas Cantata. Our Handbell Choir meets for rehearsal in the sanctuary several Wednesdays of the month at 7:00 PM. We still have room for more ringers. If interested, please contact Carol Berndt, Handbell Director, for further information.
Chancel Choir is open to anyone high school age and older. The Chancel Choir usually sings for our 9:30 AM Worship Service twice per month (September – May) & some special services. We sing a variety of styles of music including traditional, gospel, contemporary – just to name a few. Each year at Christmas time we go caroling to our local care facilities as well as some of our homebound members, which is very important to us. The Chancel Choir meets in the sanctuary for rehearsal on one or two Wednesday evenings of the month at 7:00 PM and also at 8:45 AM on the Sundays that we sing. Rehearsal practice tracks are also sent out each month to help aid those who can’t always make it to the rehearsals. We can always use more singers to come and join us. If interested, please contact Carol Berndt, Choir Director, for further information.
For the past several years Williams Bay Lutheran Church has been presenting an intergenerational Christmas Cantata in December that has included a special Christmas Cantata Choir, Handbell Choir, Sunday School Children in costume, keyboard & sometimes other instruments. It is a great way to tell the story of Jesus’ birth and get everyone in the “Christmas spirit”. Rehearsals are usually during part of October & November on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM in the sanctuary with a dress rehearsal the Wednesday before the presentation, which is during the 9:30 AM Worship Service on the 2nd or 3rd Sunday of December. Rehearsal practice tracks are also sent out to help aid those who can’t always make it to rehearsals. Please come and join us for this intergenerational music ministry. For further details on our next Christmas Cantata, please contact Carol Berndt, Music Director.
There are opportunities to provide special music for our 8:00 AM or 9:30 AM Worship Services throughout the year. We are seeking Worship Leaders to assist with leading our newer Praise songs. There are plans to have a Men’s Choir at one of our 9:30 AM Worship service this next music season. Summertime is also a great opportunity for special music which can be vocal or instrumental. Be creative, make a joyful noise to our Lord, have fun. If you would like to be a part of our Music Ministry in this way, please contact Carol Berndt, Music Director, for scheduling or assistance if needed.
