MUSIC: Chancel Choir - *7:15pm in the Choir Suite

We seek to grow musically while at same time grow spiritually. Worship must become much more than a simple melody or lyrics on a page. As we grow we invite others to come grow with us. We seek individuals who not only have a passion for God but also for music.
