ChoirsWestwood UMC offers a singing opportunity for everyone - from pre-school on up! We believe that all Christians are called to offer praise to God. By singing in a choir we blend our own talents with others and in the process become part of something larger that honors our Lord and inspires others.
There is a place for YOU. Below you will find more information about the church's choirs and handbell choir.
