A community wide, sacred choral service will be held Sunday evening, October 20, 2019, 7:00pm, at the United Methodist Church of Webster, 169 E. Main Street, Webster, NY.

Nine choirs will be participating in this event sponsored annually by the Webster Council of Churches.  Each choir will present its own anthem and all will join together in a 150 voice choir to present the anthem," Forever Music” by Mark Hayes and the benediction, "When We Sing, We Pray" by Cox & Keveren.   Peter Derse, Music Director from the United Methodist Church of Webster, will conduct the massed choir.

While admission is free, non-perishable food and/or monetary donations will be accepted at the service. The evening’s monetary proceeds will be used to provide Christmas gifts for needy and hospitalized children through Hope House, Webster Community Chest and Santa’s Workshop for Hospitalized Children.

We are inviting those who are unable to attend the evening performance to join us for the Massed Choir rehearsal from 4:00 to 5:00 pm on October 20th.  Additionally, interested persons are invited to attend the individual choir rehearsals which will take place every 15 minutes from 2:45 until the start of the massed rehearsal.  All rehearsals will also be held at the United Methodist Church of Webster.
