Choir News

The Psalms tell us to "Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth; Break forth and sing for joy and sing praises."  There is no greater joy with which to accomplish this than to sing in a church choir.  You don't have to read music and you don't have to sing by yourself  Come enjoy both receiving and giving the gift of song.

Join us for another year of praise and joyful singing.  The Chancel choir will begin Fall rehearsals on Wednesday, August 30 at 6:00 PM.  The first service for which we sing will be Sunday, September 3.  

Come, bring a friend and sing for joy!
