"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.  Worship the Lord with gladness; 

come before him with joyful songs.  Know that the Lord is God."

Our Chancel Choir includes vocalists and instrumentalists that age from high schoolers to senior citizens. Choir rehearsal is held Wednesdays at 6 pm, Sunday rehearsal is at 10 am in the sanctuary.   Worship is at 10:00 am on Sundays.
