Metropolitan Choir of Praise returns to Rockford

Ready to re-energize your spiritual life? Join the Metropolitan Choir of Praise and First Congregational Church of Rockford on April 15 for an evening of sacred music guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your spirit soaring.

The 70-voice Metropolitan Choir of Praise is a mixed chorus based in Grand Rapids. Its members are men and women from numerous vocations and professions, from many churches in and around West Michigan. First Congregational Church is pleased to welcome the choir to its sanctuary for an unusual return engagement.

The choir began performing concerts of sacred music in 1963, sharing the joy of salvation and the love of Jesus Christ with audiences across the United States and around the world.

First Congregational Church is Rockford’s oldest church, established before the town became the City of Rockford. The charm and simple beauty of its sanctuary, which dates back to the 1870s, make it one of the city’s historic gems. The concert is a perfect opportunity to visit for those who have never been inside. A reception of cookies and punch will follow the performance, and all are welcome.

The concert is free, but a freewill offering will benefit First Congregational’s education wing expansion project.

The Metropolitan Choir of Praise will perform at 6:30 p.m. The church is located at 192 E. Bridge Street, at the corner of Fremont Street in Rockford. For more information, contact the church at (616) 866-2412.
