Caroler Choir is for children in grades 1-3. We learn to sing together and have fun while reinforcing team work, improving singing skills, develop poise, and training children as worship leaders. We sing in church once a month. Where can you get so much for so little– No tuition required!
Crusader Choir Rehearsals Thursday afternoons 4:30-5:15 in the Choir room
Crusader Choir is for children in grades 4-6. We build on the skills we have learned previously (although new comers are always welcome), adding more difficult and thought-provoking anthems. These children form the backbone of the cast for two cantatas a year, a highlight for us all.
