All are invited and encouraged to become involved in this exciting program. If you are interested, please contact the church office at (843) 884-9761 and make arrangements to visit with our Choir Director, Scott Brunson, and with our Organist, Pam Brunson.

Its membership is made up of persons with a wide variety of musical skills and experience; some do not read music at all; others read music, but with some limitations; still others are trained musicians with considerable background in choral music.
