Do you like to sing? Then you are invited to sing with the Calvin Church choir! We are looking for new members and want to extend a special invitation to anyone who would like to minister by using their voice to help lead music in our worship services. Choir practices are on Wednesday evenings, 7 to 8:30, and will start on September 24 in the sanctuary. To start the year with inspiration, we will have a special church choir workshop, in conjunction with the Bayers Rd. Church Choir, on Sat. Sept. 20 from 9am-12noon. Malcolm Bradley, music director at Grace United Church, Dartmouth, will be our guest clinician. Would love to have you come!
