Our Musical ensembles include: Chancel Choir, Chamber Singers, Solace, Jubilee Handbells, Olde Tyme Strummers, Caring Choir, Men's Ensemble, Children's Choir,  Flutes a bec, Cantors, Acolyte/Cross Bearers, Soloists, Liturgical Dance Troop, and Instrumentalists. Each group fulfills our Music Ministries Mission of worshiping, praising, and serving God together through music. 

Along with our vision: 

  • to create a holy and nourishing environment where the worship and praise of God through music can flourish
  • to produce and present appropriate music of the highest quality to enhance and support our worship
  • to share the good news of Jesus Christ through our music
  • to build and express our unity in Christ through through music


Contemporary music creates an environment for all to connect with God and experience the presence and power of the Holy Spirit through the arts. This is accomplished through contemporary worship music, classic hymn arrangements, popular music, and videos–all which lead people to a deeper relationship with

Jesus Christ. 

We are always looking for instrumentalists, vocalists, sound/media presentation operators and other creative minds to join our band. Learn more about how you can get involved with the Ignite worship service with the contact information below.

Join us on Sunday, October 17 at 3:00 pm to hear Geriatric Jukebox. Alan and Jean Satz will entertain you with stories, humor and music. They organized a few years ago and have become a favorite of Hendersonville. If you have not heard them, they will soon become a favorite of yours. All concerts are free and open to the public.
