Developing loving relationships with Christ and our community

Featured Ministry: Stonehill Choir
By Kijana Knight-Torres, Choir Ministry Leader

The Stonehill Choir provides a venue for church and community members to come together to experience the joy of singing and develop performance skills. The choir is open to anyone and everyone who wishes to sing together in a collaborative fashion, meaning that there are no auditions. All that is required of singers is that they practice the music, attend rehearsals, and come ready to sing and have fun!

For the 2018 Christmas season, we’re excited to present Heather Sorenson’s first Christmas cantata, The Silence and the Sound, this year at two venues (see newsletter announcement for more details). The choir has been working really hard since the end of July and I am so proud of what we’ve all accomplished!

We have big plans to grow this music ministry – mainly through stage accommodations and more AV equipment, and appreciate the church for its incredible support through generous donations, help with publicity, AV help, and of course, being part of the choir. So please join in welcoming this 2018 Christmas season by attending one or both of our Christmas programs!
Dear Church Family,

We've updated our weekly newsletter!  We hope it will be a useful resource for church members to stay involved and be in-the-know.
