The Chancel Choir will begin practice Tuesday, Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. and practices weekly at that time.

The Handbell Choir practices weekly immediately before that at 5:30 p.m.

Both choirs would welcome new members! Whether you're musical or not, we would love to have you join us. Everyone can sing, and everyone can learn to play handbells and chimes. There is a place for you in these fun and rewarding activities.

Please contact Music Director Gilda Lewis or Handbell Director Rhonda Burchett by calling the church at 825-8506, or just come to the church on Tuesday and introduce yourself. You can start singing with the Chancel Choir immediately, and the handbell choir will work with you to bring you up to speed on the ins and outs of bell-ringing. We have lots of fun, so please come join us!
