Worship Choir and Orchestra

This Wednesday, August 3, the Worship Choir and Orchestra will be resuming their mid-week rehearsals for the Fall semester. This is a great time of year to come and check out the Music & Worship Ministry if you’re interested or thinking about joining. Both groups will first meet in room B100, right across the hall from the Worship Center, starting at 6:30pm. In addition to preparing worshipful music for our Sunday services, the ministry will also be taking time this semester to prepare some fun country gospel songs for Round Up Sunday, as well as beautiful and festive selections for Christmas at Hoffmantown. If you love music and worshiping the Lord through singing or playing an instrument, then come and check out the Worship Choir and/or Orchestra this Wednesday, August 3 at 6:30pm in room B100.
