JANET BAUM || TRADITIONAL WORSHIP LEADER Janet shares in leading traditional worship and directs the choirs. After 36 years of teaching music in public school and directing church choirs, she knows how to motivate children of all ages. She endeavors to help the congregation feel comfortable on Sunday mornings, and makes a point to greet all who attend worship.
The choir meets on Wednesdays evenings from August through May. Their rehearsal combines learning parts and laughter, and concludes with sharing joys and concerns - it’s a family, but new members are always welcome. The handbell choir rehearses as needed to prepare for special events and church holidays.
A native of Illinois, Janet has been with us 6 years. In her spare time she teaches piano and voice. Ask about her talented grandchildren.
