The First Presbyterian Church of Elko is proud of its music ministry. You are encouraged to participate in any of the following groups.
The adult choir prepares and presents a variety of music at church services. The choir typically practices at the church at from 8-9 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Those of all vocal abilities are heartily welcomed to the choir. The ability to read music and count time is appreciated, but not absolutely necessary. It is helpful if you can carry a tune and sing on key. The choir takes a break during the summer months.

The First Presbyterian Church of Elko is the proud owner of three sets of handbells that are put to good use by its various handbell groups. The Sunrise Ringers usually meet three to five days a week in the fall at 6:30 a.m. They also attend a two-week handbell camp together in June each year. Other combinations of handbell ringers, such as Bells 2 and the Bell Tones, can be assembled depending on the availability of ringers.
The group is open to those in fourth grade or older who can read and count music and commit to regular rehearsal attendance. The handbell ringers present a Christmas concert annually and perform at the Nevada Youth Training Center, various area elementary schools, and other venues. They present a spring concert if groups are rehearsing. “This is a fun music experience that offers group bonding and a rewarding outreach and community response,” said Ann Nisbet, the group’s leader.
