Youth Choir

The Youth Choir is open to sixth/seventh through twelfth graders. The Youth Choir leads, enhances, and deepens our worship experiences through their anthems and special presentations. The youth sing in parts, develop vocal technique and musicianship, and work on a wide range of repertoire, from gospel to classical. They occasionally sing with the adult choir and serve as role models for the younger choirs.

Rehearsals are Sunday mornings from 9:0 - 9:45 a.m. in the Parlor. The Youth Choir sings about once a month during the 11:00 a.m. worship service.
