Honor and exalt the Lord through music and worship opportunities for all ages
The Worship Choir is a dynamic worship-leading team for singers 18 years old and above. This choir supports our Sunday morning services at 9:30 and 11:00 am in the fall, winter, and spring, and at our 9:30 am service in the summer. We also participate seasonally with the Living Christmas Trees, our Good Friday and Easter services, and other special events throughout the year (Patriotic services and Concerts of Praise). If you love to sing and have a heart for worship, please consider making the Worship Choir one of your weekly commitments. Attend a rehearsal and we will share with you the details of making a commitment to the Worship Choir. We rehearse Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00 pm in the Choir Room (WC129).
