Music is important at Ebbert.  We have a choir which sings most Sundays September through June. During the summer we have a variety of special music from the very talented folks in our congregation.

Each Sunday we sing a variety of songs to enhance worship and connection to God from old time gospel to more contemporary praise songs.  The words are available on a screen and music in the two main hymnbooks.

Royce Osborne is currently leading the choir, as interim director until we can welcome a new choir director.  [Details above.] Our church organist/pianist Kevin Kleppe plays organ, piano and arranges some songs on a keyboard.

If you like to sing the choir practices each Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. Enter through the C St Office door and turn to left to the Fireside Room. The choir also gathers at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday to go through the anthem in the sanctuary.

We also have an Ebbert Brass Ensemble which plays periodically.Ebbert Brass Ensemble
