Covenant Choir Notes . . .
The Covenant Choir will be singing on Christmas Eve, and then taking a short break.
Rehearsals and anthems will resume in mid-January.
The Spring 2020 choir schedule is posted below, and was emailed to all choir members.
lease think about joining the choir!
The current roster of members consists of about half who read music and half who don't read music.
Those who do read music help those who don't!
And don't feel that you have to be there for every rehearsal and anthem either...
All that is required is a love of singing praises to the Lord!

In loving memory of
The Covenant Choir begins the regular schedule in September;
we rehearse after church, usually on the first and third Sundays,
and sing an anthem on the second and fourth Sundays, as well as for special services,
all the way through to the following May. The Summer Choir sings once a month in June, July and August.
There are no dues or tryouts, and you don't even need to "read" music -
all that's required is a willingness to try and a desire to make a joyful noise to the Lord!
If you have any questions, please contact Jan Stack at email@example.com or talk to her at church.
Come sing with us!
It's not a performance.
It is a gift we give- to express God's love
and it's a gift we get back-
we feel God's love lifting us
with the blending
of our very human voices.
The Covenant Choir
The Covenant Choir, under the direction of Jan Stack,
is a group of adults who sing anthems for the worship services during the regular choir season,
which runs from September through May.
In the summer, we sing one Sunday a month during June, July and August.
The Covenant Choir has performed the National Anthem at the Joliet Jackhammers and
Joliet Slammers games at Silver Cross Stadium, at The Route 66 Dragstrip in Joliet,
and has also sung at the Rialto Square Theatre as part of a combined choir from Plainfield.
In 2002, the Covenant Choir was the core group and the organizers and producers
of the Community Cares Concert, raising money for the addition to Plymouth Church
in addition to thanking the community for their support in that effort.
Recently we sang anthems for a program in which our Congregational meeting house,
built in 1850, (known currently as Plymouth Congregational Church) received an award from the D.A.R.
In past years, we were the core group for the Community Crèche Choir who sang yearly in
the annual Crèche Lighting program, hosted by our church in conjunction with the Plainfield Lion’s Club.)
We are a small but dedicated choir –in fact, half of our members do not read music!
We are always delighted to welcome new members,
and suggest that you try singing with us in the summer to see just how easy it is.
There are no tryouts, dues or membership requirements
other than to be an adult who loves to sing praises to the Lord.
