CHILDREN & YOUTH OPPORTUNITIES

Through our children's and youth choir ministries, we seek to shape our children's spiritual lives as an extension of Christian education. Weekly rehearsals include a time for creative development of a theme, verse or song. We learn the meaning of worship elements and study hymns, symbols and seasons, scripture, and the art of creating music.
