It’s your time. You’ve thought about it – you know it’d be fun – you’ve even maybe felt convicted about it. Maybe this spring is the time to DO it! Join either of our choirs. (Or join both!) Now is also the perfect time, since we will soon be starting work on our May musical. You will be astounded at not only how much you enjoy the rehearsing and leading in worship – but the fellowship in these groups is worth joining on its own. Celebration Choir (9:00 worship) rehearses at 5:00 on Sundays and Praise Choir (10:30 worship) meets at 6:00 on Wednesdays. Join us!
