Music

We make music to connect with one another and point ourselves toward God. These music ministry opportunities are open to all—with no auditions—and our prayer is that all who participate will grow in Christ and experience God’s truth and love. If you have any questions about the information below, you can email Tyler at t.heckman@firstandcalvary.org or call the church office at 417-862-5068.

Children’s Choir | Sundays at 9:30 a.m. | In the Choir Room with Ms. Hannah (2nd floor)

We are blessed to be able to offer this unique ministry where kids can come together to express their faith through music and feel that they are beloved children of God. The Children’s Choir helps lead worship throughout the year and presents special music around Christmas and Easter. Our goal is to encourage a love for fellowship, music, and worship that the kids will have for years to come.

If you want to know more about us, you can visit with Hannah or Tyler after worship on Sunday, or schedule a time to come see what we do in rehearsal! 

Windows Youth Choir | Sundays from 5 to 6 p.m. | In the Atrium with Tyler and Jim (Lower Level)

Windows is a touring mixed choir for students grades 6–12 that does not regularly sing in worship on Sunday mornings, and is open to youth from any church or non-church background. The goals of the Windows Youth Choir are to offer students a summer choir tour that is budget friendly, to help grow their musical skills and love for singing, and to provide a positive space for them to connect with other singers from around the community that they wouldn’t normally get to meet or sing with on a regular basis.

If you are interested in joining, our rehearsals are open all year! 

Bell Choir | Sundays from 6 to 7 p.m. | In the Bell Room with Brenda (3rd floor)

The Bell Choir rings in worship quarterly, is composed of both youth and adults, and is welcome to people of all musical backgrounds. The folks who play bells are passionate about fellowship, music, and serving the Lord, and they are always excited to receive new members. If you want to see what they’re all about, come throw on some gloves, meet your stand partner, and start ringing for the Lord!

If you are interested in joining, our rehearsals are open all year! 

Chancel Choir | Wednesdays from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. | In the Choir Room with Tyler & Jim

The Chancel Choir is a friendly group that rehearses every Wednesday night and leads worship every Sunday morning. The music they sing is fun, challenging, and rewarding to learn, and they often sing accompanied by instrumental soloists or ensembles. It is easy to walk into this group, make a friend, and immediately be welcomed into the fold. Whether you are a professional musician, a student, or a music-lover, you will enjoy it here.

If you are interested in joining, our rehearsals are open all year! 

Don’t See What You’re Looking For?
