"There's something about God's word put into song that simply digs right in and finds a home in my soul, especially when I'm called upon to sing it. Because of Praise Band I've made lifelong friends (brothers and sisters really), had some amazing music-making experiences, actually composed few tunes, and have become a better musician overall." Beth R.
The Praise! Band leads worship once a month. There are two teams that rehearse on either Monday or Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00pm Open to high school students through adults by audition.
Adult Choir - Voices of Peace
"It is really about singing with a group of people who love to sing. These 'Voices of Peace' encourage one another, they share an occasional heartbreak and we share in prayer." Jim M.
"The last few years I have been trying to find a part of me that's more than just a wife and mother...but I wasn't quite sure where I fit...after this weekend, I finally know where I belong. I might not be the best singer in the bunch, but I would most certainly like to continue." Michelle M.
"I came to choir more than a little reluctant and terrified. I came to give it a try and now can't picture myself not being at a Thursday night with the rest of the Voices of Peace....Thanks to the patience and coaching of Kathryn, Kris and Kerry I was welcomed and nurtured. The entire group made it easy to fit in." Cathy M.
