"Music is God's gift to people, the only art of heaven given to earth, the only art of earth we take to heaven."    (Walter Savage Landor)

Adult Choir
Chancel Choir
"... I will sing praise with the spirit..."  (I Cor 14:15 NRSV)
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all ye lands!  Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing."  (Psm 100:1-2, RSV)

Do you enjoy singing?  If so, please join the Chancel Choir!  Practice is in the choir loft 7:00 - 8:00 Wednesday evenings.  We have great fellowship while singing praises to the Lord.  The only requirement is that you enjoy singing!  There are no auditions!  The Chancel Choir sings most Sundays during September through May.  Saint Augustine said "Those who sing pray twice."  If you would like to pray this way, join our choir!  Please contact Joe or Gwen Peebles with any questions.
