About Testament Choir

For over three decades Testament Choir led the music weekly in the 8:15 sanctuary service. They now are part of the Worship Team assisting in leading the 11:00 AM Revive worship service every Sunday in the Great Hall. 

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 being a part of the Worship Team for the Revive service Testament also prepares 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. Their travels have taken them to visit and/or perform in 27 states. 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, they visit local attractions and work in mission at food banks while having lots of fun fellowshipping with one another.
