The Adult Choir, which numbers approximately 40 singers, regularly sing in the worship services. The choir sings anthems and also helps lead worship along with the worship team and band. The adult choir rehearses in room 417 in the CLC on Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 8:15 pm. New members are always welcome! It is helpful to have some experience reading music, but not mandatory. A heart for worship and leading others into a spirit of worship is a requirement.
