The United Methodist Church of Anoka has a thriving music program!
Angelic Chime Choir

The Angelic Chimes is the gateway group into the handbell program here at UMCA. Choir members learn the basics of handbell technique, rhythm and music reading as well as developing teamwork and coordination skills. We also love to experiment with different combinations of chimes, bells, mallets and rhythm instruments! Angelic Chimes plays in Sunday services 2-3 times during the school year.
Jubilee Handbell Choir

The Jubilee Handbell Choir is the upper level of UMCA’s handbell program. We love handbell pieces that fully utilize the beautiful 5-octave set of Schulmerich bells that we have available to us here at UMCA! Jubilee plays a huge variety of music from pop charts to hymn arrangements and everything in between. We also collaborate with other ensembles and guest musicians to round out our musical and worship experiences. Jubilee Bells plays in Sunday services approximately once a month and on special music Sundays throughout the year.
