5 Things You Didn’t Know About the Choir June 14, 2016

Secrets? The choir has secrets? Well, maybe not secrets, but there are indeed some fun facts about the choir that not everyone knows about. Let’s take a look!

 

  1. Before every choir performance, the choir meets to pray over each “passport” on the sponsorship table. Each little performer picks one child to pray for by name. They ask that the Lord will move in the hearts of those who will be attending the performance and that His will is done in which children are sponsored that evening. You should see their faces light up when “their” child gets sponsored!
