Attention Junior/Senior High Schoolers and Adults!

Do you love music and good fellowship? Would you like to be part of the music program, but don't have musical abilities? Are you more of a dinger than a singer? Does any of this "ring a bell" to you? Then I invite you to be part of the church Chime choir! We meet Wednesday evenings at 6:15 p.m. See Barbara Haberern if you have any questions.
