Choir for Christmas We are looking for some voices to assist us with music for our Christmas Eve service. If you can carry a tune, even if you don't see yourself as someone who would have a solo, would you consider participating in the choir? We are in need of some additional folks in order to make this ministry successful. If interested, please see Jayna M.

If you would be willing to serve in this way, please mark so on the Response Form.
