So, please “Men”, join us on these dates for rehearsal as we come together to lift up the name of Jesus in song. The Women came out in huge numbers, as they always do.

Please come on out on these dates and times to assist the Male Chorus: Friday, November 9th at 7:30 pm, Tuesday, Nov. 13th at 7:30 pm. Please sirs, be on time, as we do serve “An On Time God”!
