Chapelwood's Music Ministry is an energetic, diverse collection of choral ensembles, handbell choirs, instrumentalists, and worship leaders, whose styles are as varied as the worship services themselves. From the Children's Choir program through the Wesley (high school) and Chancel (adult) choirs, there is a place for anyone who wishes to participate. You are invited to become a part of Chapelwood's Music Ministry and experience the presence of God through the melodies and harmonies of beautiful, meaningful music.

Chapelwood's Sanctuary organ was recently enhanced, and the console replaced. For more information about this majestic instrument, see the Sanctuary Organ page.

Music is interwoven into all of Chapelwood's worship offerings. To find out more about worship at Chapelwood, see the Worship Ministry page or click the green community icon at the top left of the page for more on each of our worship communities.

I am the Sanctuary Organist - I accompany our 8:25 and 11:10 worship services and serve as the accompanist for the Chancel Choir. As the accompanist on staff I work with our soloists, instrumentalists, and wedding coordinator to support their music needs, as well. I also make sure that all of our instruments are maintained and in performance-ready shape year round. I’m available and in the office Monday-Thursday each week and would love the opportunity to work with you in any way I can to support worship in our church.
