Easter Choir: Calling on all voices to sing the Easter anthem on Easter Sunday! No strings attached! You don’t have to make a long term commitment. Just give Kari Fietek your email, attend at least two rehearsals (either Wednesday evenings or Sunday mornings, times TBA by email) and practice at home with recordings. Our Easter anthem is “Glory to God!” from the Handel Oratorio: Susanna – sung at both churches. It will be glorious!

Children will be offered a chance to practice ringing bells during church after children’s time every week commencing today, Sunday, February 21. We are ringing for the hymn “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” for Easter.
