    Choir now accepting new members

     

    Interested in joining the Calvary Choir?

    • Lift your heart and voice in worship with us! If you'd like to serve in the Calvary Choir, please schedule a Wednesday rehearsal visit now by contacting Chelsea Jones at 704.341.5435 or cjones@calvarychurch.com.

    Our Calvary Choir, Orchestra, Band, and Tech Team are comprised of Calvary members who serve on Sundays in our worship services. We sing and play a wide variety of musical styles and strive for excellence in all that we do (Colossians 3:23). We prepare each week during "Wednesday Worship," where we rehearse and grow together through prayer and rich community. 

    We accept new members in August and early September, then again in January. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, a member of Calvary Church, have some skill in either vocal or instrumental music (orchestra or band), have a worshiping heart, and a desire to serve in a dynamic worship team, we invite you to join us!

    "Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!" — Psalm 103:1
