If you would you like to sing in the choir but are not sure about committing to staying until 8:20 p.m.on Wednesday nights, you are invited to sing in the Christmas Choir. This year, as in past years, we are encouraging singers who want to try out participating in choir to join us from 7:00 p.m. to 7:40 p.m. on Wednesdays. During this time, we will rehearse Advent and Christmas music. At 7:40 p.m., these Christmas singers will be gladly dismissed. If you’ve thought about giving choir a try come join us for Christmas Choir.
