Children's and Youth Choirs

Choir nurtures spiritual growth, stimulates self expression and creativity, builds confidence, allows children and youth to lead in worship and minister to others, and provides an opportunity to share musical talent. Choir rehearsals are structured and fun; classes are taught by a credentialed music teacher with emphasis on scripturally based songs. Rehearsals include prayer time, vocal warm-ups, fun music games with rhythm instruments and movement activities, hymn study, and age-appropriate educational activities. All choirs have opportunities to perform during the year.

Choir runs from September through May each year.

Cherub Choir

Cherub Choir is for 4-year-olds through 1st graders. This choir rehearses on Thursdays in the choir room at 4:00-4:50 p.m. (While not required, many of these children also attend Kid's Club after choir--from 5 - 5:45 in the Family Life Center.)

The teaching philosophy for this age group is based on positive reinforcement; and kindness and acceptance of others are emphasized. Children at this age learn music concepts prescribed in the California Standards for Music Education such as: beat/rhythm, dynamics, tempo, high/low, pitch recognition, simple form, finding one's singing voice, listening skills, recognizing and playing simple rhythms on instruments, playing music games and following directions in order. 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.
