Music & Arts


Music & Arts

Our Worship and Fine Arts Department prepares inspirational music and dramatic/artistic presentations for worship. We believe God can and does deliver His message of mercy and grace in this way.

If you sing or play an instrument, or like to act or direct, please consider joining us. Get involved in the arts at Chapel Hill! For further information, Contact Gunnar Tesdahl.

  Chancel Choir

If you've ever considered joining the choir, now is the perfect time! Use your talents for God's work. The chancel choir rehearses every Thursday evening and plays a pivotal role in leading the congregation in worship each Sunday. Come and be part of this exciting music ministry.

Weekly rehearsals are Thursday from 6:30-8:30pm in the Choir Room. Come a little early so we may begin promptly at 6:30pm. Join in for some fantastic music, friendship, and fellowship. Childcare is available for Thursday evening choir practice and Sunday mornings.  

This is an ideal time to serve in the music ministry of Chapel Hill. Add your voice to our chancel choir or your instrument to the orchestra to proclaim God's Good News each week through our voices and instruments. Contrary to popular opinion, we have at least 25 robes that are not being used for choir and the chancel has much more room for skilled instrumentalists. Chancel choir annually presents a Christmas concert in December. Seasonal singers are welcome.

For further information and to get involved, please email Gunnar Tesdahl.    or call 253.853.0287.
