You’re not a real singer? “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.  Worship the Lord with gladness; come into His presence with singing.”  Psalm 100:1-2

You don’t know how to read music? You do NOT have to know how to read music to sing with us, and there is NO audition.  We learn the notes and rhythms together, and we have fun doing it! “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.” Psalm 150:6

You don’t know anybody in the choir? Come give us a chance, and get to know us. If you love to sing, and enjoy fellowship with others, come join us!  We are a fun loving, easy going group of people.   Come share your musical gifts in a fun, friendly environment.  We have a few jokesters in the group too, so there are usually lots of laughs as well.  “Be filled with the Spirit, as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:19-20

So come on back to the choir room.  We have plenty of smiles, chairs, robes, and folders to go around. (The choir doesn’t wear robes during the Summer as we are more casual and trying to stay cool.)  If this sounds like something you would enjoy, please come check us out!

We have a Summer schedule and a School year schedule. 

School year schedule: 

  • During the school year, the choir rehearses on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. and again on Sundays at 10:30 a.m.
  • For 8/23 and 8/30/17, choir will be at 6:00 p.m.  Then it will return to 7:00 p.m. on 9/6/17.

Summer schedule:

  • The summer schedule runs from June through most of August.
  • In June and July, we DO NOT meet on Wednesdays to practice. We practice Sunday at 10:15 a.m. instead.
  • The choir takes off for most of August, so during that break, we have special music (ie: solos, duets, etc.)
  • We DO NOT have Sunday morning practices for most of August.
  • We resume our Wednesday 7:00 p.m. practices at the end of August, and go back to Sun 10:30 a.m. practice.

***If you have any further questions about the choir, or are interested in giving us a try, come to a Wednesday night rehearsal at 7:00 p.m. in the choir room, talk to a choir member or the director on Sunday mornings after the service, or contact the Director of Music, Amye Carrington, at 903/892-1502.
