Choir Invites New Members to JOIN!

St. Andrew’s UMC’s Chancel Choir invites new members to join in and become a part of this hard working and loving group.  The choir rehearses each Wednesday night for about an hour and a half, and then meets briefly before the 11:00 a.m. worship to put on robes and warm up. They sing as part of each 11:00 a.m. worship service. Please consider joining in.
