Men’s Chorus Note!! The Men’s Chorus is in need of voices. We rehearse every 2nd and 3rd Friday night at 7:30 pm here at the church. You may not be a soloist, but that’s alright, as we have trained voices that may assist, so take that into consideration when you come to help us out. We’d love to help, along with our able bodied musicians. See you there!
