ADULT CHOIR
Ark and Dove is blessed to have many talented singers and instrumentalists who participate in the Adult Choir.  The Adult Choir is led by Dr. Rebecca Echols, and together they lead the music at the 9:30 worship service.  The music that the choir prepares ranges from traditional early Baroque through the 21st Century.  During the past 3 years, they have performed two large Cantatas with orchestra, collaborated with the Children's Choirs, and prepared very moving Christmas Eve and Holy Week services.  Additionally, special soloists from the greater Baltimore area are brought in for special services to share their gifts with the church.  The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings in the sanctuary from 7:00-8:30, and in the summers they have a "pickup" choir and meet only on Sunday mornings at 8:30.  If you feel called to join this wonderfully talented group, please contact Rebecca for more information at RebeccaEBell@gmail.com.

Children's Choir

We are excited to have two Children's Choirs at Ark and Dove, led by Director of Music, Dr. Rebecca Echols.  The Dove Choir, which consists of children ages 4 to 6 years, meets on Tuesday evenings as part of the LOGOS Worship Skills from 5:00-5:40.  Here, they work on making instruments, reading music, and learning songs to share in worship.  The older youth choir (1st grade through middle school), Joyful Noise, meets on Thursdays from 6:00-6:45.  This group is full of energetic singers, who prepare music to share in worship.  They sing regularly during worship services a variety of music - from African works in the Zulu language to Christmas music.  They recently completed a major choral work-- John Rutter's Mass of the Children, to be presented in conjunction with the adult choir (high school and up) and orchestra.  Each group sings about once a month during both the 9:30 and 11:00 services.  Children who are not in LOGOS are still invited to participate in the Dove Choir.  For information on registering your child for either group, please contact Rebecca at RebeccaEBell@gmail.com.

 

CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP BAND
Ark and Dove is excited to have a very talented and thriving music program, and the adult band plays a big part of that program.  The band is lead by Mark Edwards and meets every Tuesday evening at 7:15pm in the sanctuary to rehearse. The band includes guitars, bass, drums, piano, keyboard, mandolin, violin, auxiliary percussion, and of course, plenty of singers!  We prepare and share with the congregation many of the songs heard on stations like 95.1 Shine FM, and also go off the beaten path a little with celtic music, world music, musicals, U2, and Mumford & Sons.  A few times during the year, we also prepare special music Sundays, such as scenes from Godspell, a Christmas Revels concert, as well as Christmas Eve services and Holy Week services.  If you feel a calling to be part of such a dynamic and spiritually-led group, please contact Mark at Mark.Edwards.guitarist@hotmail.com.

YOUTH BAND

Ark and Dove Youth Band is part of the youth ministry of Ark and Dove. It is our desire and goal to use our gifts and talents to praise God through worship. We want to have a heart of worship; we want youth to know that worship is not just about singing, it’s about the heart – it’s about a lifestyle that reflects a heart that keeps Jesus first.
 


The youth band leads worship every six weeks, and also leads worship on Youth Sunday every year. Youth Band meets on Sundays from 12:30 to 1:30 in the Sanctuary. Come join us!
