Cookeville FUMC Youth Choir Tour 2018 will begin very early on the morning of May 29 as the group of Youth Choir members and chaperones depart at 6 a.m. via chartered bus on the 2018 Youth Choir Tour to Washington, DC.

This year’s tour program includes several choral numbers including music by Mark Miller, arrangements of gospel tunes and a drama presentation from Cotton Patch Gospel by Tom Key and Russell Treyz. The group of 51 youth and adults will participate in a service project at
Park View Community Mission in Lynchburg, VA on Tuesday, May 29. Performances include Fort Hill UMC, Lynchburg; The Kensington at Falls Church, VA; Virginia Mennonite Retirement Center, Harrisonburg, VA; and First United Methodist Church, Elizabethton, Tennessee.
The group will return to Cookeville on the evening of June 3 for a Homecoming Concert at Cookeville First United Methodist Church at 6 p.m. in the sanctuary.
