Join the Choir!

Are you interested in joining the choir? We rehearse Thursdays from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in Hull Chapel.

We will perform anthems every other week for Sunday services. Special singing masks will be provided to all members, and HEPA filters will be used in the rehearsal space to lessen the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

No formal training or previous choral experience is required. Come sing with us! Contact Director of Music Ministry Adam O’Dell at music@firstuchicago.org for more information.

Congregational singing has resumed!

Following our reopening plan, and in accordance with CDC and ACDA guidelines, congregational singing has resumed during our worship services. All in-person congregants who wish to sing our scheduled hymns from their seats may do so this week. However, anyone who wishes to sing is required to wear masks during the singing of hymns to reduce the spread of aerosols. Masking remains optional for those who choose not to sing. Singing activities will be limited to the times in the service when children are not present in the sanctuary, meaning that intergenerational services will continue without congregational singing for the time being.
