Children's & Youth Choirs

In Children's & Youth Choirs, we are privileged to share with kids the joy of worshiping, growing, and serving through music. The choirs are featured at the annual Hanging of the Greens concert in December and in worship services throughout the year. Rehearsals begin September 1 and continue through June.
