Summer Choir: Part of our tradition at Church of the Holy Spirit is to provide a Summer Choir for the 10 a.m. Service each week (June 9 – Sept. 1). Singers, all voice ranges, are invited to come any Sunday for a rehearsal in the Church at 9 a.m. prior to the 10 a.m. service. Since this is the only weekly rehearsal during the Summer, we ask those who wish to participate on Sundays to be present for this important rehearsal. Vestments are not worn. Please come and join the choir any Sunday and bring your relatives and friends. All are welcome. Darlene Hagon
