UM Christmas Choir Forming
Ames First United Methodist Church and the Colo and Collins UMCs are organizing a Christmas Choir that will be preparing and videotaping a Cantata for use in this year’s Christmas season services. The Story County UMC Circuit has indicated this might be a great opportunity for folks from the various Circuit churches to get to know one another better as a part of the Christmas Choir. Anyone who is part of the Collegiate/Wesley family is welcome to participate in this event.
Practices are going to be on Sundays at two locations to start and then will combine to one. Practices will be at Colo Methodist Church at 4 pm and at Ames First at 7 pm. You do not need to attend both. The combined practices that begin on November 7 will be at Ames First. The first practice will be October 10th.
