Music Ministry

Sanctuary ChoirSanctuary Choir

The Sanctuary Choir sings an anthem and responses in the worship service almost every Sunday. (Occasionally we have a Sunday off.) We also participate in special services. Rehearsals (during the fall, winter and spring) are on Wednesdays from 7:15 to 8:45 p.m., and we warm up on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. You don’t need to read music to sing in the choir, although it is helpful. Contact Jo Halvorsen, the choir director, for more information at 612-788-5438 or at joh@faithumchurch.com.If you are not able to commit to the season, you can call Jo at any time to sing when your schedule fits, perhaps for Christmas, Easter, Music Sunday in May, or more. With the exception of an occasional Sunday, the Sanctuary Choir takes the summer off.

Faith Praise Band

The Faith Praise Band participates in the music ministry almost every Sunday of the year. Rehearsals are on Sunday mornings before the worship service and occasionally on Saturday mornings. If you are interested and have a desire to express yourself in a Christian contemporary music style, please join us at Faith. Youth and young adults are encouraged to consider this wonderful musical ministry.

Neal McIntosh is the director and can provide more information; his phone number is 763-783-1502.

Centennial Handbell Choir

Interested in ringing? The handbell choir plays during Sunday services every four to six weeks. If you play an instrument (or have played sometime in your life), read music and are in high school or beyond, this may be the group for you. Practices are Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.; we take the summer off. The director is Janet Johnson; you can contact her at 612-788-1502 or jrcjohnson[at]yahoo.com for information. If you are interested or want more information, please let Janet know.

With the congregation's generosity, we have purchased additional bells, which now include five octaves! We'd love to have you join us for the whole season, but will accommodate your schedule if you are only available for a month or two.  

Faith Praise Singers

Faith Praise Singers is a small contemporary vocal group that sings for the Sunday worship service about once a month. We sing contemporary Christian music, accompanied by a keyboard or by the Faith Praise Band.  It is helpful to be able to read music. Rehearsals are on occasional Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m., as needed (except during the summer). The director is Jeanne Vogt (651-633-6015); contact her for additional information.
