Cherub Choir

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.
