Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.

2 Worship the Lord with gladness;

Come into God’s presence with singing.

3 Know that the Lord is God.

It is the Lord that made us, and we are God’s;

We are the Lord’s people, and the sheep of God’s pasture.

4 Enter the Lord’s gates with thanksgiving,

And God’s courts with praise.

Give thanks to the Lord, bless God’s name.

5 For the Lord is good;

God’s steadfast love endures forever,
And God’s faithfulness to all generations.





Why Bother with Choirs?

Singing in Choir...

Provides a healthy creative and artistic balance to heavily data-based education.

Is therapeutic, giving singers the chance to momentarily put aside their other pressures and concerns.
Is an effective vehicle for developing faith using music and church history.
Develops poise under pressure.

Teaches the value of teamwork.

Develops young people’s sense of culture and sophistication by adding beauty and aesthetic depth to worship.

Teaches the value of careful preparation in reaching goals.

Teaches a sense of responsibility and setting priorities.

Provides the foundation for a lifetime enjoyment of music.

Gives members a sense of pride and self-worth by showing singers that their individual leadership, demeanor and discipline make a significant to the success of the group
