The Chancel Choir is Lafayette's much-loved and loving adult choir. Its members rehearse weekly to provide anthems, service music, and special music, as requested, for regular and special worship services at LPC. New members are always welcome: "shower singers" and trained, semi-trained, untrained, or experienced singers are all happily wrapped into our choir family! "All God's children got a place in the choir!"
If you enjoy singing hymns (or other types of music) and would like to merge your voice in music ministry with others, please join us for rehearsals on Wednesday evenings. There's no audition, and you don't have to know how to read music or feel like a "leader!" Come to the Christian Education Building adjacent to the back parking lot at Lafayette Presbyterian Church at 7:00 PM. By 7:05, you'll feel like a member of the family! We'll take good care of you, and we'll laugh and pray together on our faith journeys as we minister through God's gift of music!
Some members of the Chancel Choir take advantage of the joyful adult choir experience (singing twice daily with 300 new friends!) and other sessions held annually at the Montreat Conference Center in Montreat, NC. The Presbyterian Association of Musicians (PAM) sponsors an annual Worship and Music conference in late June - we usually attend Week 2 (a repeat of Week 1). Registration generally opens in November and many classes fill quickly because of popularity and limited seating. Visit the PAM website now!
