The music ministry at GTLC is intended to develop and use the musical talent that God has given each of us. Our goal is to create an atmosphere in which people are edified, encouraged and feel free to praise and worship our Lord.

Adult Choir

The Adult Choir is currently not meeting due to Covid-19.

The sanctuary choir meets on Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm to prepare for ministry. Everyone ages 13yrs or older is invited to enjoy the fun, fellowship and blessing that this group offers. The choir is open all year but if you are a seasonal resident you could join us for the special cantatas. All you need is a heart for ministry and music, a desire to serve and faithfulness to rehearsals and services in which we minister, and willingness to work on improving your gift.

Contact Bill or Joy Russell for more information. 

Celebrate Team

The Celebrate Team is our Contemporay music ministry. The music is representative of what you would hear on Christian radio, Joy-FM and K-Love. Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings at 7 pm. All singers and instrumentalists are encouraged to join! For more information about how you might participate contact Terri Chapman at

Adult Handbells

Gateway Ringers
The Gateway Ringers is a beginning handbell choir, ringing on 3 octaves of Schulmerich handbells and hand chimes. They play for worship every 6-8 weeks and rehearse on Thursday evenings at 6:00 pm.  New members are always welcome, there is a place for you! The ability to read music is not necessary but the willingness to learn and have fun is.
Gateway Bronze
(Handbell Ensemble)
Gateway Bronze is a group of 6-8 ringers interested in more advanced handbell ringing. Reading music is helpful for this group.

The GTLC Children’s Choir rehearses during the Sunday School time.  In addition to learning the songs, there is always discussion of the lyrics and the meaning behind them. They sing for worship every 6-8 weeks and often join forces with the Celebrate Team! 
Joyful Noise
(Children’s Hand Chime Choir)

Joyful Noise rehearses during the Sunday School time, alternating with the Children’s Choir. In addition to playing for Christmas Eve and other special services, Joyful Noise members learn to read music.
