Worship Choir

Our worship choir meets on Wednesday nights at 7:45. We do a wide variety of music from Hymn Arrangements to Southern Gospel to Praise and Worship . We lead in worship every Sunday morning and present special music at least two times a month. We also present a large Christmas program each year and do extra music for Easter.


JoySong is a mixed adult ensemble doing a blended style of Praise and Worship songs with Gospel and Hymns. We mostly sing for worship on Sunday Mornings and a couple of special concerts here at the church a year. This is a group of singers that you either have to be able to read music or sing a part very well by ear. We meet for rehearsal on Sunday nights at 5:45, and we usually take the summer off starting in June.

Men of Joy

Men of Joy is an ensemble generally a double quartet, singing a lot of Southern Gospel, such as Gaither Vocal Band, Cathedrals and such. We have performed the national anthem at several venues including the Lexington Legends baseball games. We meet at 4:45 on Sunday nights.


JuBELLant Ringers

The JuBELLant Ringers is our hand bell group under the leadership of Monica Drury. They generally play for worship once a month and present a Christmas and Spring Concert. There are eleven ringing spots in this group.
