Children’s Music Ministry
Choirs for Grades K-8 are offered on Wednesday evenings from September-April. Strong Praises for Grades K-3 meet from 6:15-6:45 and Singers for Christ for Grades 4-8 meet from 6:45-7:15. They are introduced to various music techniques, learn hymns, anthems, and fun songs. The Singers of Christ also learn ringing techniques with choir chimes.
Opportunities to lead and sing in worship are provided four or more times during the year, along with the Angel Vespers program at Christmas, and a musical drama every other year.
Parents are also asked to be involved as choir parents assisting in rehearsals and encouraging all children/youth to participate and share their gifts in praising God and leading in worship.
Margaret MacKay, Director of Music, directs these groups. Please contact Margaret MacKay for more information.
