No. Rachael does sometimes. I don't really have a great singing voice...but that didn't stop me from stepping in and directing the choir for about a year when we were between pastors. When the new one came, his wife obviously wanted to be in charge of the choir, so I let her take over!

Our choir had a get-together & orientation for new members to join yesterday after service. Well, DS has been itching to join & since he is finally in high school he can finally join so I go to the lunch yesterday after church. Now I don't really know the format or what we are going to do or how it will all play out so I asked my BFF (who has been trying to get me in the choir for over a year now - BIG MISTAKE asking her ). Anyway, I ask her what's going to happen b/c it sounded like after the lunch they were going to practice so my thought was to go ahead & go home & let another member bring Austin home after the practice. So like I said, I asked my BFF & she said oh no, you can come in here & listen. She grabbed my arm & we walked to the choir room. There's so much going on around me & I'm really a little lost as to what EXACTLY is happening. So I sit down with her & a few minutes into it I figured it out... SHE TRICKED ME! She knows that if she can just get me in there I would probably like it (& I DID) so the trick is getting me in there. Well, she got me in there all right! I do like it but I get a little lost every now & then AND I really don't feel like I can sing. I can't carry a tune in a bucket. LOVE to sing & God really speaks to me through music but do I sing pleasantly (do I have a pretty voice)... no, I don't think so though I know to God, I probably sound wonderful but to the rest of the world I probably sound like a frog or something! Another small issue I have with it is that I tend to every now & then get a tickle in my throat. Well, I keep butterscotch & peppermint in my purse for that VERY reason & I worry about what if that happens to me on stage. Or something worse. I would be mortified! I know I shouldn't be worried about these things but they cross my mind b/c I will tell you that I have had these kind of things happen to me A LOT. I should be used to it by now! I mean I remember our new member orientation class... I threw up all over the place. I've had other little issues that i have had to politely excuse myself over. And this would be in front of the entire congregation on STAGE!
So that's my Sunday. And to answer the original question...
DH doesn't sing in the choir. Austin will be soon & apparently I might be soon too!
I did when I was younger and in high school- but not in our new church now. The service I go to (the contemporary service) doesn't really have a chior per se- we have a worship team that leads us. The second service does have a chior but I'm not in it and neither is DH
I was in church choir for a couple years when I was a teenager - HUGE choir, lots of special programs, - and I miss it terribly. I did join choir in the church DH and I used to go to and loved it, but we ended up leaving the church for other reasons. Our current church has a very small choir as well as a worship team. While I have certainly thought about the possibility of auditioning, now is not the right time. Once I finish school I will definitely give it serious consideration.
