Through music at Noel, we strive to encourage everyone to "shout for joy." We strive not only for the highest quality in our music making, but also in evoking the Holy Spirit, so that it might flow freely through our hearts and minds before, during, and after worship each week.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
This is the primary choir that sings all year in the traditional Sunday worship service. The rehearsals on Wednesday nights in the choir room are rewarding in many ways. We not only work hard, but we play hard too. We believe that the rehearsal is to be productive, and also therapeutic after a long day at work. In addition to leading in worship, this is the primary choir that performs major choral works each year in the Noel Masterworks Concert Series.
We are proud to offer student internships that are beneficial to both the church and the recipient. These are given to college students in the area who commit to serving Noel's music ministry during the school year by singing in the Chancel Choir.
Established in 2002, the praise band offers music for the contemporary Sunday worship service. Comprised of guitars, drums, keyboard, voices and more, the praise band contributes to Noel's high quality of music.
Noel boasts a five-octave set of Schulmerich handbells and a four-octave set of Malmark hand chimes. The handbell group can be heard at nursing homes, hospitals, and retirement communities in the area, and at special church events.
Youth band brings together our youth interested in vocal performance with those interested in furthering their instrumental talent. Combining their musical gifts, our youth band practices throughout the school year preparing performances for worship services and other church events!
Masterworks Concert Series

Sponsored by the late Mrs. Billie Haacker and the late Dr. Robert Haacker since 1994, this series strives to bring excellent music to the community. All concerts are free and open to the public.
