Upcoming Events

The choirs are ready to emerge from their summer hibernation.  The Senior Choir has been resting their vocal cords and doing their breathing exercises so that we are ready to sing a joyful noise.  We will be kicking off rehearsals on Wednesday, September 19th at 7:00 PM and would love to have you join us too.  There is plenty of room for more in the choir loft and as always, the more the merrier! 

The Bell Choir members are ready to switch from dumbbells to handbells and are ready to ring-a ling and ding-a-ling to share some beautiful melodies with everyone.  We really need another player or two, so please consider joining us.  The bell choir practices on Sunday after church and will start practicing on Sunday, September 30.   

If you have questions about either of the choirs, just contact the church at 815-362-2129.  We look forward to seeing you!
