2019 Choir Trip


Our choir will travel to Lincoln Cathedral today August 1, returning on August 12. This tour could not happen without a tremendous amount of hard work from many, many people: our musicians, Choir Angels, tour managers, wonderful choir parents, and - of course - all of you who so generously support us through your gifts and encouragement. Please keep us in your prayers.
 
- Richard Clemmitt, Organist & Choirmaster
