Although the Chancel Choir’s primary objective is to provide musical leadership for our Sunday morning traditional worship and special services throughout the year, it’s also a thriving and growing fellowship group. The group practices on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. and at 8:15 on Sunday mornings. We are a welcoming group of all talent levels, and anyone is encouraged to join us! For more information, please e-mail Patrick Marchant.
