The Christmas for the City Gospel Choir is once again rallying for people who love Jesus and love Gospel music to join hands, hearts, and voices to form a City Gospel Choir that will minister at the event. God has truly graced this group of musicians, choir members, and ministers of music from various churches in previous years. This year we are hoping to see 100 people sing in the choir! You can help us reach that goal by spreading the word to your church’s music department and by sharing invites on social media. 

There is no sign up required. We just ask the interested singers “show up”. (see rehearsal schedule below) We have made recordings and lyrics for all the songs available through a website called Planning Center Online. To hear and rehearse to the music just go to www.planningcenteronline.com and log in with the following info:
