The sanctuary choir sings at the 10:00 a.m. worship service on Sundays from late August through June, and on special Sundays at 8:30 a.m. as well. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary. The choir is open to all adults and high school students who wish to sing. Previous experience and an ability to read music are helpful but not required. Childcare is available during rehearsals. 

Sanctuary Choir: There’s always room for more voices in the choir! We would love to have more youth and adults join us this fall. Being able to read music is helpful but not required. MP3 files or CD’s of music are provided so those that learn by listening can practice away as they drive in their cars! Choir rehearsals are 7:30-9:00 pm every Thursday, in the Sanctuary

Let us know if this is something you’d like to consider and we can answer any and all questions  janet@fpcl.us. We are hoping you’ll give us a try- no reading of music necessary and practice files are available.

This group meets at various times throughout the year based on when they will be sharing their gifts in the worship service. Children are asked to gather in the Sanctuary narthex at 11:15am and we will rehearse until 12:00pm. Please email brie@fpcl.us for upcoming JAM practice.
