Music is an essential component of all worship services at Jeffersontown Christian Church. Music enables the congregation to experience the presence of God in a unique way. Those who participate in the different music ensembles discover opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship in addition to the development of musical skills. All ages are encouraged to be involved in our music ministries.

Adult choir

The Adult Choir is directed by Debbie Dierks and is open to anyone who loves to sing. The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 and participates in worship on most Sundays with the exception of the summer months.

Joyful spirits band

The Joyful Spirts Band was created originally as a four-piece instrumental combo playing jazz arrangements of well-known hymns. The band now includes vocalists, a wide variety of musical styles, and provides music for Sunday worship and other special events throughout the year.


The handbell choir name comes from the Scottish word for church and is a long-honored tradition of Jeffersontown Christian Church. Led by Debbie Dierks, the handbell choir participates in several worship services throughout the year. Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm.
