Songs and activities help our children discover music as a joyful, natural means of expression. They begin to grow in God’s grace as they sing, play and move. No mode of learning or expression is more natural to a child than music, through its melody and movement, its energy and emotion, its rhythm and rhyme.
Our children’s choir program is for children from birth to 5th grade and uses a curriculum published by Growing in Grace. “God Loves the World” is the 2022-23 theme! The songs appearing in each unit have been carefully written to ensure they are developmentally appropriate for the child, both theologically and musically. With understandable texts, singable melodies, and interesting accompaniments, these songs will help each child develop his or her natural singing skills, increase in musical knowledge and grow spiritually. We are grateful for the opportunity to share in their faith walk.

Young Musicians Choir
Directed Susan Eernisse
This choir for our older children in 3rd through 5th grades helps them continue to develop musical skills that they will carry with them into youth choir and their lives outside of church. The words of the music they sing can help strengthen the foundation of their understanding of Jesus and what God wants for our lives.
