Choir and Orchestra

Listen here for the Christmas Cantata….

Small Dancing Light, Taylor Davis   

It is not too late to join us!


It is time to get that instrument out of the closet!

What if we had enough players to play in worship once a month!  Let Debbie hear from you! [email protected]

Drummer needed for drum kit or African drums such as djembe, congas, etc.  There are many anthems and hymns that need that extra touch that only a drum can give.  Do you play or know someone who does?  Please let Debbie know.
