“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;”
Ephesians 5:19

The music program is one of primarily traditional church music with a smattering of more contemporary music.  Both styles are prepared for presentation in order to glorify the name of the Lord.  All members of the adult choir are volunteers, as is the director.  Rehearsal is typically at 5:30 P.M. on Sunday afternoons.  There are two strict requirements for being a member of this group.  One requirement is that a person must want to sing; we do not “conscript” members.  The other requirement is that one must be able to breathe.  However, if you have trouble with this requirement, we may be able to provide oxygen for you.  Being able to read music is NOT a requirement.  We just want people who love to sing and want to praise the lord.  Occasionally, different members sing solos, duets, and other small groups.  Again, all participation is volunteer.
