  • Chancel choir

    Chancel Choir continues to grow and learn to share God's Word through music for both the 8:00am and 9:30am worship services.

    Desert Spring has been blessed with a deep well of talent - some of it sitting undiscovered in the congregation. We welcome new singers!


    We strive to present a variety of types of music, incorporating soloists, small groups and instrumentation as much as possible. In addition, every effort is made to coordinate the music with Pastor’s sermon topic.

    We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 pm – 8:40 pm in the Sanctuary.


    We have two Choir Clinics each year. One is held prior to Easter where new music for Lent and Easter is presented and study begun. One is held prior to Advent, Christmas, and our "Toe Tappin' Into Fall" concert. These clinics are invaluable as we spend approximately 4 hours during each Clinic in rehearsal.

  • scholarship singers

    Welcome to our amazing UNLV Scholarship Singers!

    Thomas Calvin, Sarah Kim (who is also our Handbell Choir Director), Aaron Pendleton and Tamara Richards (shown left). 


    These talented people are lending their voices to the Chancel Choiir as we sing praises to our Lord.

  • praise band

    The Praise Band leads worship at the 11:00am contemporary service each week. Vocalists are supported by a variety of electric and acoustic instruments and percussion.


    Band rehearsal is held at 6:30pm on Thursday evening.

  • Handbells

    The Handbell musicians enrich our traditional worship services regularly. Handbells are always looking for new ringers, and add new octaves to their range regularly.  We are currently recruiting substitute ringers. 


    We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm - 7:30pm in the Sanctuary.

    You are always welcome.

  • orchestra

    Desert Spring  hosts orchestra musicians who support choral music for special events and special worship services, such as Easter and Christmas Eve.

  • mellowtones big band

    Mellowtones are Desert Spring's own big band. Mellowtones perform at special events at the church and across the valley. 

    Mellowtones also provide music in the traditional services, either en masse or as smaller sections to augment anthems and hymns. 


    One of our favorite Sundays of the year is Big Band Sunday when the full band joins us for our traditional worship services.  


    Mellowtones rehearse at 7:00pm Thursday evenings, except during the summer months.
