Regeneration is the middle school (6th-8th grade) choir that meets every Sunday afternoon from August-April. Rehearsals include a variety of songs, instruments, and games. Performances include singing at worship services throughout the year, a combined Christmas program with our high school choir, and our annual tour taken the first weekend of May. The destination rotation for tour includes Panama City Beach, Chattanooga & Orlando. We usually sing at a nursing home on Friday evening & participate in a church service Sunday morning, with Saturday being our “fun” day. A homecoming concert is sung at Wednesday night supper following tour.
Hosanna is the high school (9th-12th grade) choir that meets every Sunday afternoon from August-May. Rehearsals include a variety of songs, some of which are accompanied by our youth band. Performances include singing at worship services throughout the year, a combined Christmas program with our middle school choir, and our annual 10-day tour taken around the end of May. Tour destinations are voted on by the choir members and have included Chicago, New York City, Boston, Key West, San Antonio, Jamaica, & California. The choir sings at churches, rescue missions, homeless shelters, and Salvation Army posts and performs a homecoming concert for our church family the Sunday evening after we return. This choir has been a vital part of our youth program for almost 40 years.
