Music

Make A Joyful Noise Unto The Lord! 

Music is a crucial part of a vital multigenerational community like Portage Chapel Hill Church. Our worship services are anchored by individuals and groups of all ages who give of their time and talents to make sure that the full range of spirit and emotion is reflected in our many expressions of worship. If you sing or play and instrument, or have always wanted to better-up the gifts you have, Chapel Hill can connect you to music in a wide variety of ways.
