The congregation at Faith is remarkable in that its people genuinely love and appreciate music across a wide range of styles and experiences. We are encouraged by the hymns handed down from previous centuries as well as newly composed songs from members of our own praise team. From children through adult, vocal as well as instrumental music, the church community is dedicated to praising God “with heart and hands and voices.”

The Chancel Choir is a group of talented singers desiring to use their vocal gifts in praising God and who are capable of singing in four-part harmony. The choir practices on Wednesday evenings in November and March, with featured appearances in special services during Christmas and Easter seasons. A highlight comes in December at the annual Carol Concert in which all music groups participate.
The beauty of English handbells and handchimes can be heard in special music pieces occasionally at Faith. The instruments are a five-octave set of Malmark handbells and three octaves of Malmark handchimes. Players have appeared in local handbell festivals and mass “rings” in Delaware and Pennsylvania.
Faith Worship Team
The Faith Worship team exists to glorify God by leading the music portion of our contemporary worship service on Sunday mornings. We play each week to an audience of One, our Lord Jesus Christ, and encourage those present to worship Him along with us. Songs used in worship include modern praise songs, classic hymns of the faith set to contemporary music, and some pieces written or arranged by members of our team. If you play a string instrument, we've been waiting for you. We rehearse on Thursday evenings at 7:30pm.
