Children of all ages enjoy a variety of opportunities to grow as young musicians and participate in worship leadership at First Presbyterian Church. Our graded choral and instrumental programs offer children, Kindergarten through 5th grade, the opportunity to be active participants in the life of the church. The program also reinforces the Christian education of our members through music of the liturgical seasons and the biblical texts that are part of the music. Participation in the following groups helps build confidence, leadership skills, and allows them to express themselves creatively through music. No experience is necessary and all children are welcome! Learn about other opportunities in our Children's Ministry program.
Carol Choir (K-2nd Grade)
Rehearsals: Sundays, 3:30-4:30 p.m. in Room 243
Under the direction of Music Associate, Laura Collins, the Carol Choir is the first step in our elementary music program. Fun, fellowship, and music education are incorporated into weekly rehearsals. Carol Choir singers discover their musical talents while learning to sing on pitch, read basic notation, and be part of worship leadership.
Choristers (3rd-5th Grade)
Rehearsals: Sundays, 3:30-5 p.m. in Room 245
Under the direction of Music Associate, Becca Sawyer, children in Choristers continue their music development. Participants work with a wide range of anthems and congregational songs that expand their vocal range and instrumental abilities. Handbells are part of this fun group. Children continue to learn how to read music notation, develop their singing voices, and enjoy music games and fellowship in rehearsals.
