Adult Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir helps to lead the 9:30 worship service from September through June and welcomes all adults as well as older youth.
Choir rehearsals are held in the sanctuary on Wednesday at 7:00 pm. There is no experience required – just a love of singing and praising God through music! Please consider joining us! Contact Choir Director Lee Ann Daigle (585-265-9700) to learn more.

Webster Presbyterian “Ringing” Programs

Handbells, Handchimes, Japanese bells, colored bells and chimes

Ringing instruments is a great activity to put counting and eye-hand coordination to work!

Our church is blessed wih a five-octave set of Schulmerich Handbells. In addition we have five octaves of Malmark Handchimes. We have expanded our Handchimes to include some large chimes in the lower sixth and seventh octaves. In addition to the programs listed below, there is always an opportunity to add a learning-to-ring group if there is interest.

Glory Bells is a choir made up, not only of WPC members, but includes ringers from other churches. This choir prepares programs to present at local nursing/senior facilities. Anyone interested in this type of programs should contact the church office. This group does not play in worship.

Alleluia Bells is the only bell choir at this time that presents offerings in worship. It is a choir of experienced adults and youth which rehearses once a week. Currently the rehearsal time is from 6:00 to 7:15 pm on Thursdays.

In the fall of 2021 the Christian Ed program is going to include chime/bell ringing on the second Sunday of each month. The children will learn to play church songs. We have a set of Japanese bells and hand chimes for children K – 5th grade, and colored bells and chimes for preschoolers. We are hoping to have the children make musical offerings in worship from time to time.

Vacation Bible School will also include a chime program. There will be various ringing instrument activities for the different ages.

Lenten Banner-


A new handmade Lenten banner with a tribute to Pastor Davis Ash Wednesday.

Symbolism of the banner:

The color Purple was the most expensive dye so only the wealthy or Kings could buy purple fabric. Gold is a precious metal that is refined until it is pure. So we remember Jesus is called the King of the Jews and is pure and good.

The pieces of the cross are shaped like nails that were used to hold Jesus to the cross. The vine that curves around the cross has black leaves, representing the palms that are kept from Palm Sunday and are burned for the Ashes of the next Ash Wednesday.

The bowl of ashes represents how in the past people rubbed ashes on their skin to show they were sorry for their sins. On Ash Wednesday the Pastor dips his finger in the ashes and makes a cross on us to remind us of the cross on which Jesus died, his suffering and that he loved us so much that he was willing to die for our sins.

The words, “How Are You Living,” were the focus of Pastor Phil’s sermon on Ash Wednesday. The words remind us that God thinks about how we are living and how we need to stop and think about how we are living. Are our lives pure? Are we remembering Jesus? Are we focusing on the Lenten story as we move through the days of Lent?
