St. Paul’s Children’s Choirs have been honored with the invitation to sing at the Opening Worship Service for the Texas Annual Conference on Sunday, May 27, at 7 pm, at The Woodlands UMC. 

Parents, you are welcome to drive your children, if you prefer. Otherwise, please meet at St. Paul’s at 3 pm that afternoon to board buses to The Woodlands. There, we will rehearse, eat dinner provided for us, and then sing for the evening service. After the service, we will board buses back to St. Paul’s, with a tentative arrival time of 9 pm.  

We will rehearse our songs in advance on Sundays, May 20 & 27 during our 11:05 worship service. Please let Anna Teagarden know if your child will sing by emailing
