Adult Choirs

We have two fantastic adult choirs, one for the 9:15 service and one for the 11:15 service. Consider joining one of them.

Regular Weekday Rehearsals

9:15 & 11:15 Adult Choirs: Thursdays, 7:00-8:40p, followed by a potluck social time (once monthly) or Sung Compline (remaining evenings), both optional, which many members have come to appreciate as ways to get better connected with fellow choir members and bring a prayerful end to their day.

We understand that one's life can be full of many activities and obligations. Weekly rehearsals allow everyone to attend as often as possible, and minimize the impact of absences. Choir members are encouraged to try to limit their absences to one per month.

See the current Choir Calendar.
