From mid-September to early June, Vocal choir rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings before worship, except on those Sundays the bell choir performs.

Handbell Choir rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m., immediately after vocal choir rehearsals. The bell choir performs on average once a month and will rehearse at 9:00 a.m. the Sunday they are scheduled to play.

The choirs always welcome more voices and hands to sing and/or ring in the Vocal and/or Bell Choir. If you can't commit for the whole year, please feel free to join us for a few weeks for the Holidays.
