If you sing, THIS IS FOR YOU. This fall we’ll be putting together our first ClearView Worship Choir! On Sunday, December 9 we’ll join the Sunday morning services, leading in worship but also preparing some great specials to bless the congregation. We’ll sing some newer Christmas-themed contemporary songs and also some fun gospel music! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE ABLE TO READ MUSIC to join us! All I ask is that you be able to match pitch.

This is a SHORT TERM commitment; we’ll just have five rehearsals leading up to December 9. If you can’t make every rehearsal, that’s okay, but I do ask that you make every effort to attend as many as possible. The more voices, the better! This will be a fantastic ministry to our congregation and I hope you’ll be a part of it. Open to anyone 12 and older.

Contact me to let me know you’re planning to join or sign up online.
