The invitation is still extended to those who wish to join the choir. We are in need of men in the Parish Choir. John Wesley stressed the importance of small groups in our faith. We have many small groups in our church, and Parish Choir is one of them. Did you know that there are many health benefits to singing? Studies have shown that singing is very healthy! Singing, particularly in a choir, is shown to increase mental health. In addition, studies have shown that singers’ heartbeats synchronize when singing, acting as though there is a single heart beat, rather than many.

A few months ago, it was mentioned that the Parish Choir would be purchasing new robes. These robes have been purchased and are on their way. If you would like to give a donation in memory or in honor of someone to go toward the Parish Choir robes, please include “Choir Robe Fund” on the memo line of your check. The new robes are $120.60. Prayerfully consider how God is calling you to participate in the life of our church.

Grace and Peace, Dakota
