You’ve thought about singing in choir. You’ve felt the tug. You’ve avoided the subject around your musical friends because you know you should be involved, right? That’s fine – that’s past. But now’s your time. Our presentation of “Redeemed” is in the books – Christmas music won’t start till fall – we are reviewing lots of favorites and learning a few new things. Sounds like the PERFECT time to jump into choir, doesn’t it?!? Praise Choir (10:30 worship) practices at 6:00 on Wednesdays and Celebration Choir (9:00 worship) meets at 5:00 on Sundays. These folks realize the importance of serving and using whatever gifts God has given to honor Him and help people experience His presence more powerfully. You don’t have to read music. But if you can sing, why wouldn’t you want to get in on something that incredibly fulfilling? (And fun!)
