Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing. Psalm 100:1-2
What a wonderful way singing is to praise our Creator and show our gratitude for all the gifts we have been given. Singing can bring us into God's presence, as well as bring us hope, comfort, peace, and joy. The Chancel Choir helps bring the congregation into God’s presence through singing. Each week the choir offers an anthem and leads the congregation in singing during Sunday morning worship. Typically, the anthem is chosen to complement the sermon topic and the theme of the worship service. The choir is an integral part of the worship experience at Westview.
All joyful singers are welcome to join the Chancel Choir. The ability to read music is helpful but not required. Choir members work hard to deliver a beautiful anthem each week, and they also support and care for each other. Choir is a wonderful small group! Please come to a Wednesday rehearsal if you are interested in finding out more about the group.
Under the direction of Director Tom Riis, the Chancel Choir rehearses each Wednesday from 7 to 8:30 pm, in the sanctuary, and then again at 8:45 am on Sunday morning before the worship service. Choir does not meet during the summer months.
