Adults high school age and older meet weekly beginning in the middle of August. Time is spent preparing music for both Sunday worship as well as special worship services and events. Those interested are welcome to attend rehearsals any time throughout the year. We work diligently, have fun, and enjoy singing music of our faith together and sharing it with the congregation as we help lead worship.
