Music Ministries

The Calvary Music Ministry is composed of a diverse group of people who lead the church in music and worship, with members ranging from professional musicians to non-music readers.  Each group focuses on music from many styles.

Praise Team

The Praise Team helps lead our Sunday 8:30 am Contemporary Worship Service mid-August through mid-June.  They always welcome additional members to play instruments and sing in the band.  Rehearsals are Wednesday night from 6:00-7:15 pm. The contemporary Worship leader is Ed Melendez.

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is made up of music lovers who sing praise in four part harmony for the Sunday 11:00am Traditional worship Service mid-August through early June.  All persons age fifteen and older are welcome to visit a rehearsal or join in singing.  Perfect attendance is not expected of those who travel, and therefore rehearsals include music for weeks in advance so that members can come and go freely, and still sing when they are in town.  Music sung by this choir will be a wide variety of anthems, in many styles, from old traditional, a few classical, plenty of Gospel tunes and spirituals, and modern Praise songs and anthems.  Because of our 'revolving door' policy, more voices are always needed and welcome!   Together we can make more beautiful music than most of us can do alone, so come add your voice to this fun group of folks who meet on Thursday nights at 6:30pm.  The Chancel Choir family of music lovers and singers would love to have you join us, be you an experienced singer or an occasional shower soloist!  Director, Jolyne Antista welcomes everyone!  Feel free to visit a rehearsal, just to observe, or to join in singing.  "He who sings prays twice."


Good Vibrations Permutations Handbell Ensemble

Calvary UMC is honored to have the Good Vibrations Permutations Handbell Ensemble perform at various times of the year. The ensemble is an ad-hoc group (hence the “Permutations” in our name – we have different members for the various occasions when we play) that enjoys bringing the blessing of handbell music to our community.  Contact the Church Office for more information about this musical ministry or to schedule a time for the group to play.
