Sponsor a Chapel Choir Tour Bus Seat Today!

The 46th Annual Chapel Choir Tour will take place March 25-April 1, 2017 and you can help us cover some expenses and Make it Easier to Get to the Big Easy by “sponsoring a bus seat” for $25. The cost of transportation is one of the largest line items in the tour budget, so offsetting some of the cost through seat sponsorships will help reduce the individual tour fee for choir members.

Use the form below to direct your sponsorship to a particular student or have it applied to the tour fund. Forms are also available in the church office and in the west entryway on the poster board.

Make checks payable to DGFUMC and write ‘Bus Sponsorship’ on the memo line.
