Carol Choir

The Carolers are open to first through fifth/sixth graders. The Carolers are learning to lead worship and are really working at developing their musical skills. They are learning how to read music on the printed page, how to sing in parts, and how to play counter rhythms with each other on the drums. Carolers serve as leaders of worship and prayer by singing anthems, leading processionals, teaching new songs to the congregation, and sharing their songs with the community outside the church.

Rehearsals are Sunday mornings from 9:00 - 9:45 .m. in the Choir Room. Carolers sing about seven to eight times a year during the 11:00 a.m. worship service.
