Summer Pop-Up Choir will begin on Sunday, June 10th! We will meet at 10:30 am on July 8 & 22, August 5 & 26 in Trinity Hall. Pop-Up Choir is a fun way to get into singing at church without any commitment other than showing up on Sunday morning 30 minutes before the late service. We learn an easy tune or special hymn verse to sing either during a hymn, psalm, or the offertory at the late service. No experience necessary, singers of all levels and ages are welcome to join us. If you are interested in learning more, or would like to get on the email list, please contact Jackie Nappi .
