Children’s Choir

The Children’s Choir is for grades 2–6. The children present anthems in worship, sing in a Christmas Eve service, and participate in the spring Intergenerational Musical. The choir “sings our faith” in worship, develops musical skills and builds Christian fellowship. All children are welcome; no audition is required. Bring a friend!

Check the Music Calendar for rehearsal and performance dates.

Youth Handbells

The Youth Handbells ensemble is open to students in grades 7–12. Ringers at all stages are welcome; experienced ringers in the ensemble mentor new ringers in learning more advanced techniques. High school ringers may also participate in small ensembles, such as trios and quartets.

Check the Music calendar for rehearsal and performance dates.

Youth Instrumental and Vocal Music

In addition to singing in the Sanctuary Choir and ringing in Youth Handbells, youth in grades 7–12 may present solo/small ensemble instrumental and vocal music in worship or participate in the Percussion Ensemble, Family Handbells, and the Intergenerational Musical.
