Worship & Music Ministry

England Trip, May 2019:

The Chancel Choir will be leading a trip to England in May 2019, led by director Laura Kitchel and Pastor April Blaine. All are welcome: new singers, spouses/partners/family of singers, non-singers, and other interested persons. They will be traveling to Oxford, Norwich, and London to study John Wesley and Julian of Norwich, and to sing in some remarkable places. The goal of the trip is to grow in music, knowledge, spirit, and community. If you cannot be a full-time member of the choir, there will be special rehearsals in the spring to learn the trip music. Contact Laura Kitchel for details.
