CHOIRS

Being in a choir provides both a singing and spiritual community for children and their families at our church. The combination of advanced musical training in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere with the spirituality and camaraderie of a church choir is unique. Many of our choristers have remained a loyal part of the program all the way through their graduation from high school. To learn more about Children’s Choir, see a schedule, or sign up – click here.

Need a Prayer

PSALM 51
Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
