The Cherub Choir is open to children in preschool through kindergarten. Children of this age are just beginning to develop their musical abilities. Our hope for the Cherubs is that they enjoy making music together at the church. We have designed their entire curriculum to help them find the music that is living inside of them. They dance, march, and wiggle; they make noise, play rhythm instruments, and pretend to be animals; they pray, they learn about God, and they sing!
The Cherub Choir meets during the first 15 minutes of Church School (9:45 - 10:00 a.m.). Twice a year they sing praise to God during the 11:00 a.m worship service.

On their Winter Retreat last weekend, our Youth Choir and Carolers began the creative task of staging portions of “March,” their dramatic presentation examining a history of oppression, from biblical and American slavery, to the Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter movements.
As the presentation will center around acts of Godly protest, one of the first tasks the children accomplished was the making of their own protest signs, pictured below. What poignant messages come from the minds of our little ones!
They also practiced, and created their own words for protest songs from the Civil Rights Movement, tying the thread of oppression through the millennia in language we can all understand.
On Sunday, February 12, the children and youth choirs and church schoolers will offer this dramatization in worship @ 11am in the Sanctuary. Come watch and experience their creative understanding of our history, unfolding in scripture, song, and story.
Special thanks to Merle P., David R., and Deb W., without whom none of this would be possible!
Read the Pastor's Blog HERE for a further description of the event.
If you would like to register for a music group, come to a rehearsal @ 9:00am on Sunday mornings and the forms and permission slips will be available. If you would like to register for church school, come to the 2nd floor on Sundays @ 9:45am and ask any teacher for forms.
If you are not a part of the United Parish family, you and your children and youth are welcome!!! If you would like to become involved in church school or any of the music groups, contact Alisa Joyce, who coordinates the Christian Education programs, or Susan DeSelms, Minister of Music.
