Music allows us to connect with God and each other in a joyful way. In our church it is a vital and exciting element of our worship services and we invite you to participate!
We have a senior voice choir and a handbell choir made up of members of our church community. During worship service our choir, and our congregation, sing music of many styles: traditional, contemporary, gospel, popular, and more -- accompanied by organ, piano, keyboard, guitar, drums and other instruments.
The choirs are open to adults (high school and older) who wish to join at any time. If you are interested in joining either choir - or both - please contact our Director of Music Ministry, Jeff Hobart.
Our choirs proudly join with the community of Randolph in celebrating such events as community winter celebrations, The Ecumenical Thanksgiving Celebration and The Third of July Parade.
Senior Voice Choir
Our Voice Choir of Sopranos, Altos, Tenors and Basses is open to adults (high school and older) who enjoy singing. Our choral music repertoire includes traditional anthems, great classics such as The Messiah, and contemporary songs, like Don't Stop Believing. Summer Sunday services can feature choir members or people of our church congregation offering duets, quartets or a solo.
Thursdays, 7:00-9:00 pm and Sundays, 9:15-10:00 am
Summer Rehearsals - Sundays, 9:15-10:00 am
Chapel Chimes Choir
The Chapel Chimes is a handbell group open to adults (high school and older) who wish to “make a joyful noise unto the Lord". This group rings on the last Sunday each month during worship service and performs seasonal concerts open to the public.
Tuesdays, 7:00-9:00 pm, September - May
During the Christmas and Easter seasons,
we traditionally present special musical
celebrations with instrumental
accompaniment for our worship services
and for the community as well.
The choir is beginning rehearsals for a musical celebration of Easter, to be presented on Sunday, April 19 at 3 pm in our sanctuary. The program will include two works: Once Upon a Morning, a creative storybook-like work spanning from Easter through Pentecost, complemented by “Hallelujah!" from Handel's Messiah. This celebration of the season will focus on a part of the story that is not as frequently told, but that still speaks to us all. We are blessed that our choir will be enhanced with voices from the choirs of neighboring churches in Randolph (St. Mary parish, St. Bernadette parish, and First Baptist church), as well as community members. The voices will be accompanied by professional instrumentalists, promising to be a joyous celebration that will leave all uplifted.
Please join us for this free event!

Our summer youth theater program was inaugurated in August 2015 with a vibrant production of the Broadway version of Godspell, followed by spectacular productions of Jesus Christ Superstar in 2016, Guys and Dolls in 2017 and Children of Eden in 2018. In the summer of 2019 the program presented the New England premiere of Here We Go ‘Round! A Musical Fantasy, written the Rev. David Henkelmann, a member of our congregation. The show was previously produced off Broadway when Dave was a minister in New York City, and was revived to wide acclaim once again in Randolph.
Supporting enthusiastic and talented young actors from our congregation and the greater community, a team of our church and community members lends their time and talents to every aspect of these productions. Check back soon for next summer’s production!
