We have a worship team that leads us during services, but with all the COVID restrictions I honestly don't see us having choir right now. Maybe things will be different by the time Christmas rolls around, but it might be safer to wait until next year.

Do churches still have choirs?  I thought that worship teams -- designed to lead the congregation in worship -- replaced the need for choirs.  One can't beat congregational singing in a worship service.

So, choirs during COVID are redundant and non-existent. Let's permanently put choirs and "special music" to rest.

Instead, have worship teams teach and lead meaningful psalms, hymns and contemporary songs.

Due to space restrictions, I am doing choral quartets.  Selecting 4 individuals to sing choral settings.  

Yes, choirs are still valid.  Look at some of the mega churches.  They have choirs of 200 or more.  I do a hymn festival  with a choir and full orchestra.  We do everything from Chris Tomlin to Vaughan Williams.  Choirs can encourage congregational singing just as effectively as a worship team.
