Chancel Choir: Bill Eash

“next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise…” Martin Luther

Director Bill Eash on Chancel Choir: “The Chancel Choir is a dedicated group of church musicians committed to enriching the worship experience at Bethel College Mennonite Church. Ranging in ages from 17 – 85, the choir seeks to provide a welcoming, inter-generational music experience for anyone interested in singing. In addition to singing twice monthly in the worship service, the choir sings at the annual Christmas eve service. Occasionally combining forces with the Cherub and Youth choirs, the Chancel Choir helps to celebrate Easter, All Saints Day and World Communion Sunday. Come and participate by adding music to the Word of God.”  Bill Eash also directs the Cherub Choir which, as it states above, is for children grades Pre K through 4th grade.

Chancel Bells: Vada Snider

Director Vada Snider on Chancel Bells: “Chancel Bell Choir is a vibrant group of musicians. We’re always looking for new members who love the challenge of working together to create beautiful instrumental music. This year, in addition to the ongoing Chancel Bell Choir, we’ll be pulling together a new adult group to play in church just a few times. So you can give bells a try without having to commit for the whole year!”
