Area of Ministry

The primary goal of children’s choir in a church setting is to help kids learn to share God’s stories and lead the congregation through song. It’s also a great place to build lifelong skills in and love for music. In order to accomplish both those goals, children’s choir needs to be a community--a place where kids feel loved and supported, where they build relationships and trust by making music together, and where they have opportunities to grow both musically and spiritually.
