The music ministry of Immanuel is comprised of a vocal choir for anyone of confirmation age or above, a 3-octave handbell choir for those of the same age, and at times as needed, a youth choir. The choir sings for both the regular Sunday morning services and special services during the months of September-May, taking a much needed "vacation" June-August. The handbell choir plays during church services on a somewhat regular basis of once a month. Both the vocal and handbell choirs are directed by Jeff Behling, and accompanied by Joan Chasanov. The youth choir is prepared by members of the church school staff.
Members of these choirs are among the most dedicated members of Immanuel, as they rarely miss singing or playing for a service, come rain, shine or blizzard. During the harshest of winter Sundays, it's not unusual for the choir attendance to be as large as the rest of the congregation!
