Children's and Youth Choirs

Welcome to children’s and youth choirs at Point Loma Community Presbyterian Church!  God has entrusted each of us as parents and adults with the responsibility of shaping our children and helping them grow. Our choirs help children discover many things about God, themselves, and music ministry. Choir nurtures spiritual growth, stimulates self-expression and creativity, builds confidence, allows children and youth to lead in worship, minister to others, and share their musical talent. Rehearsals include prayer, development of vocal technique; group voice lessons, fun music games, rhythm instruments, movement, hymnody, and age-appropriate educational activities with emphasis on scripturally based songs.  All groups have opportunities to lead in worship.

A choir ministry, because of its Kingdom-building commitment, is set apart from dance, sports, art and gymnastics. It is not just another activity option in the long list of activities available to children. Children who learn to use their singing voice at an early age grow up equipped to participate in worship through music. Children who are securely rooted in God’s Word have the best possible anchor to secure them in the midst of life’s raging storms and murky waters.

Cherub Choir

The teaching philosophy for this age group is based on positive reinforcement; and kindness and acceptance of others are emphasized.

Scripture topics are discussed based on the theme of songs and church seasons.

During choir season, children may have the opportunity to perform in the following performances: monthly Sunday worship singing, Christmas Eve Pageant, Christmas Concert performance with adult choir and orchestra, Palm Sunday processional and singing, Spring Musical, and other special events.
