Our dedicated choir (Director: John Robertson) is made up of all ages and sings SATB choral music on a regular basis. The choir rehearses each Thursday from 6:30 pm until 8 pm, and provides musical support to the Sunday liturgy and other special services throughout the year . Aside from the Sunday services, the choir endeavors to offer two to three concerts a year which most often is in front of a full audience.
Our Sunday school meets each Sunday from September to June during the 10:30 service. The kids range in age from 3 to 14. Each week we have a story, discussion time, and a craft or activity, enabling the children to learn about following Christ, while having fun. During special services, like Easter, we worship alongside our families. The kids lead the parish in 2 outreach projects annually, showing them that they can make a difference in the lives of others.
We welcome the opportunity to learn and grow with our youngsters.
