Templeton Presbyterian Church is blessed to have a spirited ensemble of volunteer singers that are an integral part of the Sunday worship service.  Director of Music, Dr. Vern Sanders, leads them.  Vern is dedicated to bringing spirituality to each service as he participates with the praise band, directs and accompanies the choir, and works closely with the Worship Leadership team each week to form a cohesive synergy of music, sermon, and prayer.

   He challenges the choir each rehearsal with a variety of music.  We take in his teachings on music history, tonal quality, breath control, pronunciation, and apply these to each worship occasion.

   We would love to have you join our family of singers on Thursday nights (6:00-7:30pm) for rehearsal in the TPC Chapel.  We work hard and have fun, while remembering to whom the glory is given through song.


The Praise Band is a dedicated group of instrumentalists and singers who play an important leadershp role in our Sunday worship.  Led by Praise Team Coordinator, Kellie Wenzel, their mixture of traditional hymns and uplifting praise songs brings everyone in the congregation to moments of intimate worship and joyous praise of our Savior and King.

Our dynamic group includes a piano, keyboard, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, drums, and vocalists.  The congregation joins in praise, following along with projected lyrics.  The Praise Band adds to the spirit-filled leadership of the worship service.


There are no more angelic tones than those which ring to heaven from a hand bell choir.  Nancy Jo Doughty leads our very talented team of ringers made up of dedicated individuals creating music together for worship and fellowship.  The ringers have presented uplifting melodies during our worship services as well as participated with the choir and instrumentalists during the presentation of major music works on Christmas Eve and Easter Sunday.
