Music » Children's Choirs
Our children's choirs offer young people the opportunity to build relationships with each other in a caring Christian community by coming together in fellowship on a weekly basis. The children's choir program at the Church is grade- and age-appropriate. At each level musical skills and theological concepts are taught in a supportive environment. All are welcome.
Cherub Choir is designed for preschool children, age 3 and 4, to enjoy music, movement and rhythm games to develop their musical senses. This group is led by Kathleen Mahan on Sunday mornings in in the Upper Children's House class room immediately after worship from 11:30-11:45 a.m. All children are welcome without registration.
Primary Choir is for children grades K-2. The program introduces music fundamentals, singing, and musical games. They are primarily a training choir and sing in worship about every 6 weeks. The choir rehearses in the choir room on Wednesdays from 4:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Junior Choir is for children in grades 3-5. Further development of musical skills such as part singing, vocal development, sight singing, and hymn memorization are emphasized. They participate in Sunday worship about once a month, and participate in special music services throughout the year including the Christmas Eve Pageant, and the Choir Festival Service in February. Rehearsals are in the choir room on Wednesdays from 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.
Youth Choir is for 6th grade and up. They rehearse on Wednesdays from 5:30-6 p.m. in the choir room, just prior to Youth Forum. This choir sings about once a month in worship and for the major celebrations of the church, frequently teaming with the Junior Choir.
