YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN the Sanctuary Choir for a day in July and they are rearranging their rehearsal schedule to fit you in! Sing one Sunday, or all four!
Instead of Wednesday evening rehearsals in July, we will gather Sundays at 8:45am for a 45-minute rehearsal of the music for that day only. Breakfast foods will follow. After Sunday School, the choir will reconvene to warm up and put the finishing touches in time for worship.
No audition necessary.
Simply bring yourself and your joyful noise to the choir room any Sunday in July at 8:45 for music and fun! See you there? Hope so!
