“Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before the LORD with joyful songs.” Psalm 100: 1-2

Over 400 times in scripture, God mentions singing.
If you are looking for a way to minister to others through your life – Please come and join our Wesleyan Choir. We are looking not for professional singers but for people who want to express their love for God through singing.

Rehearsals are Wednesday nights from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. Then, we meet at 10:15 on Sunday morning to warm up and prepare our hearts for worship.

There is no pressure, you won’t be asked to sing a solo, you won’t be asked to sing alone, there are no tryouts. You will learn to use your voice by our awesome Choir Director, Shaun. You will meet and fellowship with a great bunch of people who are as different as grains of sand.

We need you to help us enhance the worship service with songs related to Pastor Carol’s messages. You will touch people’s hearts and emotions in a way nothing else can. You will serve God in a unique and fun way.
