A Journey of a Thousand Miles…

Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu said that “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Do you like to sing but have not joined a choir? Would you try singing in a choir for one day to see if it’s right for you? Why not sing with Trinity’s Choir for one of its Summer Sundays! Summer Choir rehearsals are held Sunday mornings at 10 a.m., when we learn a simple anthem for that day’s 10:30 a.m. service. Our summer schedule begins June 21 and goes through Labor Day. You can take a “single step” and join us for one Sunday, or you can sing every Sunday this summer. Contact Jerry Rich at for more information. All are welcome!

It has been a fabulous year in Children’s Choir. All of the children have worked hard to learn the music for this program as well as other songs throughout the season. It has been a tremendous blessing learning more about God and worship alongside the wonderful families. I cannot wait to see where God will lead this group in the fall. We will see you in September!
