MUSIC MINISTRY

“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises! Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!” – Psalm 98:4-6

Music opens our hearts, minds and souls to profoundly receive the Good News of God. Asbury's Music Ministry unlocks that door for us.

As Methodists, we take pride in our rich musical tradition. No matter your age or life stage, we invite you to share your unique musical talents for the glory of God through Asbury's Music Ministry! Not only do we Help Others Follow Jesus by engaging the congregation in worship and teaching them about Scripture through song, we also empower musicians to become ministers through their music so they can share his glory beyond the walls of Asbury.

Each unpaid volunteer has a dedication for their craft, spending hours practicing and living out their membership vows by providing a powerful and memorable worship experience every week. The deep love and passion they have for the Lord, their instrument, their voices, the team and congregation as a whole is clearly evident. Experiencing or joining one of Asbury's music teams is something you don't want to miss. 

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is comprised of more than 60 people with different backgrounds and abilities coming together to praise God through music. We are a community who prays for one another, cares for one another, has fun together, and works to help others follow Jesus. Our outreach efforts have included Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army Christmas Angels, and Ronald McDonald House and we have recently traveled to sing at Carnegie Hall in New York and presented Asbury in the Park at River West Festival Park.

New Covenant Orchestra

The New Covenant Orchestra is a talented group of volunteer musicians from all walks of life who add an exciting and rich dimension to our traditional worship service. Whether spirited and loud or plaintive and whisper soft, the music they produce enables the listener’s heart to open and be ready to hear God speak. We traveled to Brazil for a mission trip for a global mission project, featured at Asbury in the Park, and present an annual Fourth of July concert.

Handbell Choirs

Handbell have been a treasured tradition at Asbury and we are excited to breathe new life into this program. This is a wonderful outlet for people who love music but perhaps don’t consider themselves a singer or have an orchestral skill. If you can count to 4, you can play handbell! We can teach you the rest of what you need to know. It is a great team-building activity and enables even more people to bring the message of God to the hearts and minds of the congregation and the community.

  • REHEARSES: Sundays at 4 pm
  • PLAYS: Sundays in the 9:30 am Sanctuary worship service
