Full sounding live choral recording with low end mics?

Hi, this is my first post. I've been reading for a while and finally decided to jump in. I'm looking for helpful hints and/or suggestions on how to mic a choral concert I'll be recording.

It will be in a small church that's mostly carpeted. The choir is about 50 members. There will be an electronic keyboard playing along which I can take a direct feed from. The mics I have available are 2 SM57's and a behringer B5 (cardiod and omni capsules). It will be mostly full choir but a couple pieces are gospel style with soloists in the front. There will be no mic's aside from mine but the keyboard will have amplification. I'm not sure on the keyboard's exact location but I think it will be on the side.
