Music Ministry

 I will sing of your love and justice; to you, LORD, I will sing praise. ~ Psalm 101:1

The Voices of peace

Our adult choir features a vibrant, energetic group of dedicated singers, ranging in age from youth to retirees. The choir incorporates a broad spectrum of styles with traditional, spiritual, and newly composed anthems. New singers are always more than welcome, and director Amy Cerniglia invites interested singers to contact her at We rehearse from August through May on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm. Come!


Ringers of Peace

Peace is fortunate to have received a wonderful gift of melody chimes and handbells to both "ring in" worship services and play special music.  Come try your hand at this beautiful musical experience, or contact Amy at the church for more information.  Our group rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 6:00.


Harmonizing women of peace

Peace's newest musical group is for women of all ages who love to sing.  Rehearsals are held on Fridays at 1:00 pm. Speak to Amy about joining, or just drop in and see if it's for you.

instruments of peace


The youth at Peace assist in worship with a variety of talents, including a string ensemble and percussion instruments. Rehearsals for the Youth Orchestra take place on Thursday afternoons at 5:30, and Amy invites all string players to join. Percussionists rehearse on an as-needed basis throughout the year.
