Under the excellent direction of Stephen Merrick, this group leads the music at our 11:00 Sunday worship services. It is diverse in age, ranging from college students through seniors. They sing an anthem weekly in worship as well as calls to prayer, etc. They also present special musical presentations during the Christmas and Lenten seasons. Stephen leads in a way that is both fun and helps the group perform at it’s very best. They practice on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the choir room.
If you would like to make music with the beautiful sound of bells, this is a great place for you to express worship and enjoy fellowship with the other musicians. This group meets in the sanctuary weekly from 6-7 p.m. You do need to have basic music reading skills, but you do not have to have experience playing bells to join this group. Directed by Stephen Merrick, the handbell choir performs periodically in the 11:00 morning worship service.
New Haven’s worship band meets on Thursday nights at 6:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. In addition to playing weekly at the 8:45 a.m. Sunday worship service and various church events, this group plays at other places in the community several times a year. They enjoy playing at Redemption Church-Tulsa, and have played for events for Circle of Care, youth rallies, and more. They also perform annual Easter and Christmas Cantatas.
Footprints Liturgical Dance
Footprints is a group of people who serve in worship through dance. Children 3rd grade and up, youth and adults are welcome to join. We meet on Sundays from 3:30 to 4:30 in the sanctuary, and we dance in both worship services about four times a year. We use a variety of styles of music, depending on the worship theme and the dancers involved. Please contact Deena Smith at 918-693-4828 for more information.
