Youth and adults meet together on Sunday afternoons at 5:00 PM for fellowship and choir rehearsal. The adult choir usually sings in the morning worship service each Sunday and leads the church in worship with a Christmas musical on the second Sunday of December. The adult choir leads in worship through other occassional seasonal musicals as well.
Enthusiastic and loving workers share the gift of music and the love of Christ with children in grades 1-6. The choir meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM. Transportation is available, call the church office to request a ride on the church van.
Meets each Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM. Share the love of Christ with our church members or with others throughout our area. Write postcards or letters; make phone calls or visits.
