Music Ministry

Music is a vibrant part of every worship service at Portage UCC expressing our faith relationship with God. Our music program includes our Covenant Choir, three bell choirs, an instrumental ensemble and a youth praise band and invites everyone with a passion for music to participate. We have opportunities for all who wish to share their musical talents in worship, led by Michael Wheaton, Director of Music Ministry.

Covenant Choir

Our Covenant Choir is open to all interested singers from high school through adult. Rehearsals are on Thursday evening from 5:00 to 6:30, September through May. The choir sings a couple times per month and presents two large works per year. Experience is helpful but NOT required! Joey Gottschall, Choir Director, invites you to join this fun fellowship of dedicated people who freely share their God-given talents.

Golden Ringers

This is our newest bell choir for adults 55 and older who wish to learn a new instrument or rediscover the joy of making music with a great group of people. No previous music experience is necessary. Both practice and performances will be done from the comfort of a seated position. Join us for fun, laughter, and practice on Sunday morning before or after the church service.

Praise Ringers

The Praise Ringers are a medium-level handbell ringing group including ringers who have some previous musical background with either handbells or another musical instrument. If you are in 8th grade or older, have some musical qualifications and can commit to be at all weekly practices, we would love to have you join us. Practices are every Thursday from 6:30PM – 8:00PM and Linda Holzwarth is the Director of the bell choirs. We have lots of fun, fellowship and joy while B-Ringing our Praises to Our God and the congregation. Please join us!

Instrumental Ensemble

Do you play an instrument? Do your children play in their school band or orchestra? Karen Woodworth, Instrumental Director, invites you and your family members and friends to play in our Instrumental Ensemble. We play in worship about once a month, September through May, and we rehearse Wednesday evenings, 7:00PM – 8:00PM.
