Testament Choir

Testament choir assists in leading worship at the 11 am Revive service every Sunday. Membership in the choir is open to all students in Junior High and High School. Sixth Grade students can join Testament immediately following graduation from Confirmation. There are no try-outs and you don't have to be musically inclined; just come, sing, enjoy the fellowship and worship God through music.  In addition to leading worship musically at the 8:15 service Testament also presents special Advent, Christmas and Easter music for the church each year. They also perform musical programs for the community, and present a concert of music prepared for their annual summer choir tour.

In past years, Testament has traveled Coast-to-Coast from California to Florida and points between including Minneapolis, Denver, Chicago, and Washington DC. They have sung onstage at both Disneyland and Disney World, led worship at the Air Force Academy Chapel and on the rim of the Grand Canyon. During these trips, they sing in churches, nursing homes and homeless shelters, visit local attractions, work in mission at food banks and have lots of fun fellowshipping with one another.
