Adult Handbell Choir -
This Handbell choir regularly provides special music about once every five to six weeks from September through May each year. Having a basic music reading ability is important to be a member of this group. Winder First UMC owns a five octave set of Hammerich Schmerich Handbells. Membership in the Adult Handbell Choir is limited to approximately fifteen ringers
The Chancel Choir rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 6:45-
This choir participates regularly in the 10:55 AM Traditional Sunday Service leading the congregational singing and presenting a prepared anthem each Sunday.
The Chancel Choir rehearses on Wednesday night from 6:45 to 8:15 PM in the choir suite.
The Chancel Choir presents special services each year during the Advent/Christmas Season, Holy Week/Easter, as well as the choir favorite, the "Top Ten" Concert in September where the choir presents ten of its favorite anthems presented in the last year.
Not every choir member can attend every Wednesday night rehearsal so Bruce Nunley, Director of Music Ministries and Chancel Choir director regularly covers four to five Sunday anthems in each rehearsal. The Chancel Choir meets on Sunday mornings prior to the worship service to sing through the prepared anthem a few times and pray.
