The adult choir meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:45 PM to 7:45 PM September through May. The choir enjoys providing musical leadership in our services at least once a month at our 8:30 AM service, Christmas Eve, Easter, and a couple times a year during the Journey (contemporary) service.  We sing a variety of anthems and hymns from many different genres, but most of all we enjoy the fellowship that comes with preparing to lead worship services with our music. If anyone is interesting in joining us, please contact Chris Groth 728-5631 or send an email.
