This Fall:  As summer winds down and children go back to school, we look forward to various activities that occur: the leaves changing color, hayrides, corn mazes, gardens giving us their harvest… what also returns is choirs to their churches from a summer break. While our church does not have a choir, a few of our members have joined a community church choir throughout the years. Zion Choral begins it’s 90th concert season on October 14, 2018. Please check out their website for the list of concert dates, locations, and times.
