Music Ministry

Senior Choir

The Senior Choir is a major part of the Sunday morning service contributing to worship through the ministry of music. The 30 members are devoted music lovers, both trained and untrained, who volunteer their time and talents with great dedication. Weekly services and special services such as Christmas and Easter always include the Senior Choir, often with guest instrumentalists.

Anyone who loves to sing is welcome to join the group. Rehearsals are held weekly between 7:00 and 9:00 pm on Thursday evenings from September through June. There is also a Sunday morning pre-service rehearsal held at 9:00 am. Most rehearsals are held in the Education Building.

Within the group there are opportunities for solos and small and large ensembles. On the social front, the Senior Choir enjoys friendship, both old and new, and holds an annual party in late spring or early summer.
