Musical Ensembles

The goal of our music ministry is to provide music which supports the scriptural and seasonal themes of our worship services while providing opportunities for people to offer their talents to glorify God and inspire others through music.


Chancel Choir

Guillermo Muñoz Küster, Director

Chancel Choir provides leadership in the 10:00 worship service each Sunday from Rally Day (the Sunday after Labor Day) through the first Sunday of June. This completely volunteer choir also participates in the Christmas Pageant, Christmas Eve and special Holy Week services.

Joyful Ringers

Gary Wendt, Director

The handbell choir of GCC is directed by Gary Wendt and was founded in 1985 by Norreen Klemens. Our current ensemble has grown to five octaves. We ring Schulmerich handbells and five octaves of Malmark handchimes. This choir plays for worship once per month and on Christmas Eve. Annual concerts and workshops are also part of our schedule, which occasionally require additional rehearsal time. Membership is limited to fifteen members, but substitute ringers are always welcome!

For more information, please contact Gary Wendt.
