Worship Arts

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is a group of committed singers of all ability levels who lead worship at the Sunday morning worship service each week. If you’ve sung all your life and are looking for a challenge or if you’ve always wanted to sing in a church choir and never felt welcome this is the place for you. The Chancel Choir is open to ages 14 to 100 and is a group of really great folks who love making music together for worship. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings 6:45-8:00pm as part of the Wednesdays@Hawthorne activities. During adult choir the kids are activity participating in Kids Club and the youngest ones can go to the nursery.  We do a variety of music from traditional/classical to gospel/spirituals to world/contemporary music. Come join us one night and find a place to laugh, share, play, and SING!
Hawthorne Lane enjoys a 4 octave adult handbell choir of talented ringers. We are looking for more to join us – the rehearsal is Thursday evenings at 6pm. Ability to read music is helpful for this group but if you are interested in learning to play and helping to start a beginner adult choir see our worship director and we’ll work together to get one started. Come join in the ringing fellowship!
Praise Team
Our praise team is an eclectic collection of instrumentalists and singers who enjoy leading the more recent styles of worship music. We are always looking for new folks to join in the fun so whether you play a flute, a banjo, the guitar or anything else come check us out. We meet Thursday evenings 6:30-8:30pm. We practice consistently throughout the year and play for worship about once a month.

Choirs are offered for kids 3 years old through 5th grade in what is now M3. Sessions are offered each season, one in the fall and one in the spring. Rehearsals are on Wednesdays part of the M3 program from 5:30 – 6:30pm. Kids are involved in learning great music, leading worship, and having fun with their friends! We teach music as a gift from and a way to worship God. We believe that even the youngest worshipper can lead us in praise of God on Sunday mornings!
We are always looking to dream more creatively about our worship arts at Hawthorne Lane. If you are interested in liturgical dance, have fine or performing arts talents, or are gifted in the area of graphical design we’d love for you to come join our team. We love to involve all artistic areas in our praise and celebration of God each Sunday morning. Come bring your gifts and share!
