Summer 2024 Choir for All Ages Registration

Registration is open for the FPC Choir for All Ages for the summer of 2024. The choir will be singing for the 6:00 p.m. Evening Worship Services from June 9 through August 4. Rehearsals will take place on Sunday afternoons from 4:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. in the choir room (MB110). Our various directors will rehearse and conduct the choir, which gives singers the opportunity to be exposed to various perspectives on singing and worship. This is a particularly excellent opportunity for families to sing the Lord’s praises together in a choir. Our first rehearsal will be on Sunday, June 2.

We are the benefactors of what God has established in the generations before us. We desire to be good stewards of what we have inherited and, in turn, to pass it on to the next generation. We will seek to maintain and improve upon the treasure given to us so that those who come after us will also know its value.
