Ways to serve in our community
Ambassador Choir
on the Road Again!
Ambassador Choir, combined with Singing Saints from First United Methodist Church, had a very successful first Rehearsal in the Narthex of First Presbyterian Church on May 25, after a year-long hiatus caused by the Pandemic. The combined group, called the Singing Ambassadors Choir, has received invitations to sing at Benton House (June 7), The Oaks at Ashton Hills, Salem Camp Meeting (July 12), and Smyrna Camp Meeting. These venues will be outside, and choir members will wear singers' masks and be socially distanced.
