Volunteers are welcome at any time, in any place! If none of the choir or musician groups fit your schedule or your gifts, but you love the music program and want to support it, we have a job for you!
Volunteers provide invaluable assistance with adding/updating/inventorying the choral library, mailings, publicity, special events and services, choir functions, fund-raising, cleaning/maintaining vestments, accompanying choirs, and playing an instrument to name a few.
Days and times are flexible-we would appreciate any help you can give. Just call or e-mail Betsy if you're interested and available.
