Summer Choir Date
Inviting ALL members who have ever thought about singing with our wonderful chancel choir, but have not yet made the jump. On August 26 we will again meet at 9 AM in the sanctuary to form a "summer choir" for that morning alongside regular members of our chancel choir. Everyone will receive music that morning and rest assured you it will be easy enough to learn in just that hour before worship. If you like to sing, plan to join us on that Sunday morning and give choir a try. Looking forward to seeing you up front!
