Music Ministry

HOP Music Ministry

Music ministry plays an extremely vital role in the worship life at HOP. We are so thankful to the individuals who participate in the various ensembles here, and like to think that each of them is rewarded in a special way in return. We would love to have even more of you seize the opportunity to share your talents to glorify God in our worship.

Adult Choir

This group rehearses on Wednesday evenings throughout the year, and sings most Sundays for the 9:30 service, plus a number of festival church days throughout the year. Beyond singing choral anthems of the traditional nature, the choir takes on a much broader role in worship with liturgical material, hymn leading, etc. as well. See Phil Mennicke for further info.



ReFuel Music

Check out our alternative worship service, ReFuel.  Worship Leader, Josh Countryman is always looking for singers and musicians to join the worship team.  Experience an awesome variety of music from Christian praise and worship music to rock and roll!  



Brass Ensemble

This group will again provide a unique and exciting musical dimension to worship at HoP. The Brass Ensemble typically rehearses Wednesday or Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. and plays at worship about once a month plus special festivals. New members are welcome. See Jon Kietzer for further info.





Wind Ensemble

One of the things that is truly unique to HoP is the HoP Wind ensemble. We are indeed blessed to have this fine group. This band plays in worship about four times a year, plus the annual Festival of Carols, and rehearses as needed leading up to those events. The HoP Wind Ensemble shares many members with the Northern Winds Concert Band, a community band that rehearses at HOP and is conducted by HoP member, Joe Speakman. See Jon Kietzer for further info.


Hand Bell Choir

This year marks the 31st(!) anniversary of the inception of this fun group. As always, the hand bells will strive to provide music of the highest artistic quality to enhance and inspire our worship life. The bells rehearse Monday evenings, and typically play once a month for Sunday worship, plus other events throughout the year. See Phil Mennicke for info.



Joyful Noise!

This upper elementary/middle school group sings frequently on Sunday mornings. We focus on healthy singing and increasing our knowledge of the church year as we learn songs to sing in worship. There are also many opportunities for playing instruments, including handchimes! Phil Mennicke leads his group on Wednesday evenings at 6 pm.  The Sunday School children learn songs each week and occasionally sing during worship, led by Heather Harrison.

Solo/Small Group Opportunities

As always, we invite individuals to sing or play a solo in worship, or form a small group to do something on a given Sunday. If this is something you would like to explore, please be in touch with Phil Mennicke.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways for you to share your talents to enhance the worship life of HoP. Please take a moment to consider which of these might be the best fit for you — they each present an opportunity to meet and work with some super people, and ALL are tons of fun!
