A sincere thanks to all who came to the Broadway Valentines dinner theatre presented by the Chancel Choir. We are grateful for your support of the music ministry and the Chancel Choir. It was a fun night, and the members of the choir truly enjoyed preparing and performing favorite Broadway love songs.
If you enjoy singing and would like to be a member of this wonderful group, this would be an ideal time to join as we will be beginning the music for Palm/Passion Sunday and Easter. There is no audition. Just come Wednesday night at 7:15 and enjoy being a part of this close knit group and begin learning inspirational music for Lent, Holy Week, and Easter.
The Kids on the Hill Choir is enjoying many new faces during Wednesday choir time. They are preparing for their Spring musical presentation. This group, for grades 1-5 has a wonderful time as they learn the language and symbols of music, and the joy of singing music to the glory of God.
The Celebration Singers have a busy Spring calendar. They sing at various venues around the area, sing for services, and just sing for their own enjoyment. Senior adults love it!
