Hello First Presbyterian Ocala! Welcome to a new church year! I am looking forward to ringing and singing with you as we live our faith through worship together. Three choirs are starting up in the next few weeks. No previous experience is necessary :). If you have not yet joined us, then come on in! If you are returning, welcome back and bring a friend!
It would also be of great help to let us know you're coming so we can better prepare. Contact the Church Office: or you can email me: email@example.com
Chancel Choir (high school, college age, adults) meets on Wednesdays 5:00 - 6:00 pm in the Choir room. No auditions necessary. Chancel sings every Sunday and on special holidays/services. Bring your smile and a friend! The first rehearsal is July 31 and we will lead worship on Sunday, August 4.
Hand Bells (middle school, high school, college age, adults) meets Wednesdays 6:30 - 7:30 pm upstairs in the Bell room. No auditions necessary. The Bells ring approximately once a month at the 8:15 service and the 11:00 service (not all bells may ring at the earlier service) and also at special or holiday services. Gloves are provided but you may also bring your own. The first rehearsal is August 21 at 6:30 in the Bell room and we will lead 8:15 and 11:00 worship on Sunday, September 22.
Children's Choir (K through 5th grade) will meet on Wednesdays 4:00 - 5:00 in the Choir room. No auditions necessary. The children will lead worship once a month and also at special or holiday services. Our first rehearsal is September 4 and we will lead worship on Sunday, September 29.
Schedules will be provided at the first rehearsals and will be available online and in the Church Office.
I am thankful to be here as your Interim Director of Choirs and I look forward to meeting and worshiping with my new church family. If you have any questions/concerns about the Choirs, please feel free to contact me via the Church Office or my email.
See you all soon! Carol Piatnek-McCoy
First Presbyterian Music Ministry
The music ministry at F.P.C. of Ocala makes this congregation distinctive. We have a wonderful Chancel Choir in our traditional service. FPC has a Hand Bell Choir that meets throughout the year and Strings that meet offer music monthly. Our contemporary band “Cross and Crowns” provides music for our contemporary worship service.
