The New Era District Choir, an auxiliary of the New Era District Association, is committed to presenting appropriate music that is biblically sound; that will praise and worship to our God and edify the saints. This will be done in keeping the instructions in Colossians 3:16 "Let the words of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."
