20 Reasons to Join Your Church Choir!

Our March-April 2018 Newsletter was just posted on the Newsletter page. This is an excerpt:

20 Reasons to Join Your Church Choir! (You should read this!) 

  1. Participate in a different type of worship
  2. Praise God in a new and fun way
  3. You don’t have to know how to read music – I’m serious!
  4. Learn something new – why wouldn’t you want to?
  5. There are techniques to help people sing on key, even if you think you can’t!
  6. Singing lowers your stress levels (!!!)
  7. Singing is a natural anti-depressant
  8. Singing easily increases your oxygen intake and improves circulation
  9. Singing improves your posture
  10. Singing improves mental-alertness
  11. Choir is a confidence booster
  12. Singing strengthens your throat muscles which can reduce snoring (you know who you are)
  13. Improve your ability to communicate
  14. Connect with other church members (AND get to know your friendly neighborhood musician)
  15. Singing increases your appreciation of music
  16. You will learn more about hymns which are the foundation of all Christian worship music
  17. Represent your church and proclaim your faith!
  18. Read the Bible through music
  19. More people equals a stronger choir which broadens our song choices
  20. Help make our Sunday mornings joyful!

You do not have to make a weekly commitment to the church choir. We appreciate any participation you can offer – even if it’s only once a month! Practice only lasts about an hour but that hour can reduce stress, improve your health, and help your church become stronger and better able to present special music on a weekly basis. Thank you!
