“Shine” Youth Music Program (Teens)

The Youth Choir and Handbells - Choral singing technique is a basic focus of the Youth Choir, and our vocal work is based on pieces that we sing in church. The Youth Handbells prepare bell pieces for church services using our choirchimes or Schulmerich or Malmark handbells. Rather than offering just a rehearsal environment, we try to provide young musicians with musical instruction that will help them to grow as musicians, even in their individual musical pursuits.

Children's Music Program (ages 7-12)

The Children's Choir and Children's Handbell Choir.  We sing in church about once a month. Preparation of pieces for church services and for outings to hospitals or nursing homes gives the children the opportunity to learn proper choral technique and ensemble work. The atmosphere is relaxed, but we work hard, too!

“Cherub” Choir (ages 4 1/2-6)

Cherub Choir: music for 4 to 6-year-olds.

Emphasis is on rhythm and music games and activities. This program is intended to help younger children learn the basic musical concepts which will permit them to participate more fully in the Children's choir and bell choir. The little ones also prepare for participation in church services, just like the older children. Please note that children who participate in this program should be able to concentrate on the various (and varied) activities for an hour; a trial session can help parents and the group leader to decide when an individual child is ready to join the group.

The Youth and Children's groups participate regularly in church services. Instrumentalists and soloists from the Children's and Youth music program also have opportunities to give their gifts.

If you or someone you know would like information about joining our groups, please contact Sara Barton. Everyone is welcome!
