Choir

Have you ever thought about joining the choir? If so, now is the perfect time! The choir is currently rehearsing at 9:15 AM on Sunday mornings right before worship. You don't need to commit beyond one Sunday at a time. Show up, get a choir robe, and have fun with fellow choir members. If you have any questions, just ask one of the choir members in the blue and white robes after church.

Godly Play meets on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of each month. It is a curriculum designed to help children explore faith through stories. Godly Play is open to 3 year olds up to 5th graders.
