Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir leads the music during our Sunday Traditional Worship Service at 9:00am. We are a 20-25 member vocal ensemble led by our Choir Director Todd Oberlin. We worship God and serve Him each Sunday through music. The Chancel Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 6:15pm to 7:30pm, August through May. If you would like more information about the Chancel Choir, please contact Todd Oberlin through the church office – (636) 327-6377 or by email toddoberlin@wentzville-umc.net.

Redeemed Praise Band

Redeemed is our Modern Worship praise band.  We are a 10 member ensemble which consists of four guitarists, bassist, keyboardist, drummer, and 3 vocalists. We are not worship leaders, but lead worshipers. As lead worshipers, we are not on stage to perform for the congregation, but to worship with and lead God’s congregation through song. We ask God to use us each week as instruments of His Word, assisting us in our assigned task of making more disciples for His kingdom. Redeemed is an audition only group. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7:45pm to 9:00pm. Redeemed leads worship each Sunday at the 10:30am Modern Worship celebration. If you would like more information about Redeemed, please contact Traci Morlock, at tracimorlock@wentzville-umc.net or the church office at (636)327-6377.
