Alleluia Ringers – Handbell choir rehearses Thursday evenings from 6:45-8:00pm. Plays for services two times monthly, and once at 8:30am & once at 11:00am. This ministry is open to anyone Junior High age and older and is an excellent ministry for those who already read music rhythms. If you haven’t played handbells before, we’ll teach you!
EWB – The Electric Worship Band meets weekly to rehearse and leads worship about once a month. This group takes hymns and plays them with electric instruments and arrangements blended with more modern praise music.
Quartets – There is no higher test of vocal production and blend than what can be achieved in intimate quartet singing. Our quartets are like small group cells of singers who choose to be together or assigned by the music director. They are the backbone of the other music programs and worship leading.
Sanctuary Choir –This group has paused for Covid considerations. Join the Zoom choir or smaller singing groups. Once the pandemic is over we will resume as before.
SLC Brass – A casual group of brass players that meets by appointment and plays along with the organ for festival Sunday’s. Grab your horn and join the fun.
SLiCk Pickers – A bluegrass style band that rehearses as arranged and plays worship about once a month.
SLC Orchestra – A casual group of string players that rehearses and plays for worship.
Special Music – Sing or play an instrument at either 8:30 or 11:00am service on Sundays as needed. All ages are welcome!
Song of the Church will resume April 29th and continue every Thursday at 530-630pm. This group is a bit like “Choir-lite” We meet weekly and do vocal exercises. Then we study and rehearse the upcoming Sunday’s hymns and songs. Song of the Church is a good opportunity to exercise the voice and to dive deeper into the rich musical tradition of the church. There is no audition or experience required for this singing opportunity. It will be a little different spread out and wearing masks but, if you head down to Ted Brown Music in Silverdale they have “Singer’s Face Masks” they have a frame that allows for breathing and resonance.
Come all and join in the song of the church! For more information on the face masks visit: Ted Brown’s Website
Silverdale Lutheran’s Zoom Choir
As the first church in our area to venture into virtual choirs, Silverdale Lutheran Church has accumulated a large number of hymns for which it has developed the material needed for the transition to virtual choir singing. Its music director, Justin Cormier, has developed the methods to present hymns with a video of a choir singing together (though recorded separately by each singer), and its mixing engineer, John Ackenhusen, has developed a regular process for completing these recordings. We have over 50 hymns that are ready to share, with about four more being added after each weekly church service.
Zoom Virtual Choir Resources Liturgy hymns, Individual songs with links to Dominant Alto, Bass, Tenor and Soprano and more.
