LINDSAY LANE WORSHIP CHOIR

If you have a passion for worship and a desire to help lead the church in praise…then come join the Lindsay Lane Worship Choir! As a worshiper at Lindsay Lane, you have the opportunity to be part of one of the most dynamic ministries in the church. We are seeking people who have a passion for praise to come along beside us as we lead the church family in worship.

Being a part of the Lindsay Lane Worship Choir will not only change your life, but you will also be directly involved in impacting countless lives for the glory of God. From the seasonal events throughout the year to the recording of new worship CDs, to the priority of leading weekly worship – the Lindsay Lane Worship Choir is an important and high impact ministry in our church.

You can be a member of the Lindsay Lane Worship Choir! Rehearsals are on Wednesday Evenings evenings at 6:30 in the Choir Room. There is no pressure to join just because you wanted to see what choir is all about. As a guest, you will receive a guest packet with all the music for that night’s rehearsal, and then you will be introduced to people in your section so you can immediately begin feeling part of our family. If you decide to come back, and we believe you will, you will become a member after your third visit.

Come by, check us out and see if the Worship Ministry is where God is leading you!

For more information, call Kimberly Reese in the Music Office at (256) 232-0020 ext. 117 or email worship@lindsaylane.org
