Music at The Nor’kirk

Music is an important part of congregational life at The Nor’kirk. Many individuals contribute to our music programs, including choral and instrumental opportunities for you to share your God-given gifts. If you wish to participate in a group, or even help start a new one, contact the church office at 972-492-1578.

Chancel Choir

Lane-lrg

Adults and older youth sing in the Chancel Choir under the direction of Lane Paschal. The Chancel Choir sings every week at the 8:30 and 10:45 worship services. In addition to weekly service music the choir has also taken their voices into the community to sing with the senior residents at Lakeview at Josey Ranch, special Christmas and Easter cantatas/programs, and the Castle Hills 4th of July Celebration. There is no audition for the chancel choir; you just need to be able to make a joyful noise! Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 8:45, and babysitting is available upon request. Contact Lane Paschal through the church office at 972-492-1578.
