Swift Church choirs lift
joyful sounds to the Lord
By LISA CARDWELL | music director
Swift Presbyterian Church has choirs to praise God and to enhance the worship experience. The chancel choir continues to work weekly to bring worshipful music for our Sunday services. The handbell choir and the Joyful Tones chime choir play for services from time to time.

Music department slowing down a bit
After busy Lent and Easter seasons, the music department is slowing the pace down a bit. Our chancel choir is moving to Sunday 9 a.m. rehearsals instead of the weekly Tuesday evening rehearsals. We will be leading worship the first three Sundays in June. This would be a great time to join us and enjoy the fun and fellowship.
On June 24, Keith and I will be leaving for the Montreat Music and Worship Conference at Montreat Conference Center in North Carolina. This will be a time for education, renewal, and looking at anthem possibilities for chancel choir, handbells, and chimes.
Some opportunities may be coming up in the summer for chimes and handbells. After a few weeks of a less-busy schedule, there will also be planning for fall 2018 music at Swift.
Although Holy Week and Easter are over, chancel choir and adult handbell choir members are still hard at work on new anthems. We appreciate the generosity of people who allow us to purchase new music.
