The Calvary Choir, Orchestra, and Band serve most Sunday mornings in the worship service. They prepare each week during “Wednesday Worship,” where we rehearse and grow as musicians, and deepen our relationships with God and each other through prayer and rich fellowship. Each participant is a follower of Jesus Christ, a member of Calvary Church, has some musical skill, and a heartfelt desire to worship God. We accept new members in January and August/September. Interested in joining?
Rehearsals are held on Wednesdays from 6:30–8:15 PM in the Choir Room and Sanctuary.
