Praise Band - Audition Required - 9:15 a.m. Contemporary Service  

If your passion is contemporary worship and you would like to take part in our praise band, we invite you to sit in on one of our rehearsals and see if worship leading at NSUMC is right for you! Our band plays a variety of styles from a variety of artists, old and new. Come check us out on Thursdays from 6:30pm-8pm in the sanctuary.

Chancel Choir - No Audition Required - 11:15 a.m. Traditional Service  

Our chancel choir performs on a regular basis throughout year and we have a spot on the risers for you! If you have a song in your heart we would love for you to share your love of Christ through music with us! Music reading a plus, but not required. We rehearse on Wednesdays from 7pm-8pm, but take the month of July off.

Hand Bell Choir - Audition Required - Monthly services  

Come ring a bell or two... or three... with our Hand Bell Choir! We rehearse on Wednesdays from 6pm-7pm. Hand bell and music experience a plus. We try to move fast! This group takes July off in the summers to rest those wrists!
