— ALL REGULAR CHOIRS ARE OFF FOR THE SUMMER —

The Choir for All Ages begins June 19 and continues through the summer season. Anyone (children included!) who wants to sing is welcome. This summer choir will meet for a brief rehearsal on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM in the Chancel Choir room upstairs. We’ll be singing fun anthems that will be accessible for all age levels and abilities. And you won’t have to wear a choir robe! Let’s make a joyful noise together this summer!

 

Chancel Choir

It’s a new year! New singers are welcome, especially those with children who will be well cared for, during this rehearsal time. Plus all our great singers who have sung before are needed to help us all learn how to be a choir together. Kaitlin is directing; Ted Gentry is accompanying. There’s always great joy in singing together! 

 

Cherub Choir (Children’s Choir)

(Practice Wednesdays, 5:45-6:15 PM).  The Cherub Choir, for children ages 3 to 1st grade, rehearses on Wednesdays from 5:45pm-6:15pm.  Following choir, the children are guided to Fellowship Hall for their own special dinner and then go to free play while parents are able to take classes during the 6:30-7:30 hour.

 

Grace Notes (Youth Choir)

This is our choir for children beginning as early as grade 3 and going through grade 7. Come learn from Kaitlin!  This choir meets Sunday afternoons  at 11:30 in the Choir Room after worship.

 

Handbells

Our bell choirs are directed by Ted Gentry. If you’re interested in learning to play or have played previously, give Ted a call (255-1074 ext 112) and he can give you more information. Westminster Bells meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:30, and Canterbury Bells meet on Thursday mornings at 9:10. (school year)

 

Musicians

Are you a talented musician? Would you enjoy using your gift(s) during worship? If you are an experienced musician and are interested in playing as a part of the worship service please contact Kaitlin DeSpain to see what opportunities might be available.
