St. John’s would like to invite children grades 5-8 to participate in a new
choir at our church called the Evangelist Singers. This choir will sing a few
times during the year, including on Christmas Eve. The choir will practice
every Thursday after school, from 3:15 to 4:15. If you’re in Scouts or another
group that sometimes meets at that time, that is an excused absence. There is
also another section of the choir that rehearses a few Saturdays (not every
week) from 3-4, for those who cannot make the practice Thursday afternoons. For
