Come be a part of celebrating the joy of the Lord as we lead in worship through song. Sanctuary choir rehearses each Wednesday and is packed full of learning new songs, praying for one another and giving glory to God with our voices.
The Sanctuary Choir is open to all adults.
We have all ages and utilize a wide variety of musical styles. We enjoy a spirit of family as we share our diverse music tastes, our joys, and our sorrows in rehearsal and our exaltation of Christ each week in our 10:50am worship service.
We prepare music well in advance, making it possible for those with less training to sing with confidence alongside those with more experience. This choir sings for the 10:50 a.m. service on Sundays and presents pageants and programs for seasonal and special occasions. Workshops, guest clinicians, and other opportunities are offered to members, as well.
