Valley has a long and rich musical heritage. There are many opportunities to listen and participate.

Choir
Valley’s choir is a fun-loving group with a range of ages who enjoy singing together, led by our talented Music Director, Roderick Phipps-Kettlewell. The Valley choir sings weekly from September to May during the 9:30 worship service. You don’t need to be an accomplished singer to join the choir.  Everyone is welcome to join the choir for rehearsal on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm. The choir also meets at 8:45 on Sunday mornings before the service. 

Hand Bell Choir
Our bell choir is led by director, Janet Carlson. They play one Sunday a month from September to May and rehearse on Tuesday nights at 6:30 pm. Valley Church is blessed to own a 5 octave set of hand bells. Even if you’ve never played, come join the group and learn.
    
Wellsprings Band
The Wellsprings Band, directed by Scott Newman, leads contemporary Christian music two Sundays a month at the second service. All ages love to sing along, and maybe even dance, to Wellsprings vibrant, spiritual songs.

Fridays in the Valley Concert Series
Valley Church is blessed with many accomplished professional musicians. Two of them, pianist Sue Ruby, and horn player, Vicki Wheeler, founded a concert series to provide a venue for their many musician colleagues to perform. Concerts include a wide variety of musicians and genres.

Each concert also receives a free will offering to benefit a different charity. The free will offerings from the 2016/17 concert season raised $7,171 for various non-profit organizations in the area and since the concert series inception in 2012, $29,447 has been raised and given to local charities.

Join us for the concerts held on the second Friday night at 7:00 pm of each month from September to May. During June and July and the concerts are held on Sunday nights. Check out the 2016-17 Fridays in the Valley concert series brochure.

Special Music
Our congregation includes many talented and professional musicians. We are often treated to special performances as part of our worship services.
