Easter Sunday



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

Music for the Summer

The Chancel Choir does not rehearse in the summer. So, we need those of you with musical talent to provide special music during the summer months. It may be a solo, duet, or ensemble.

If you sing or play an instrument and would be willing to share your talents with us during worship, please let Martie know.
