Our Choirs \ Children & Youth Choirs

Our vibrant choral program provides not only a wonderful foundation of music education, but also joins music concepts, theory, and performance skills with learning the stories of the Bible, the “Golden Rule,” and about God’s unconditional love and acceptance. Our focus is to involve our children in worship, establish confidence in public performance, and build a strong Christian community. There is no need to audition, and you may register at any rehearsal throughout the year.

Grace Notes

Ages 2-4 with Parent/Guardian
Mondays 4:30-5:00pm
Directed by Dr. Jo Deen Blaine Davis

  • Children and adults enjoy music together!
  • Learn the stories of the Bible through music
  • Sing in worship services throughout the year, including the spring children’s musical
  • Make friends in a safe and relaxed environment

Grace Notes provides a safe and friendly environment where the joy of young children is evident as Bible stores are shared through the medium of music.  Grace Notes participants have fun as they sing, hear dynamics, play rhythm instruments, and develop motor skills.  A parent (guardian) is involved with the Grace Note as the child participates. This is an introduction for parents to realize that music is essential at a young age and that the church recognizes this importance.  Grace Notes sing with Cherubs occasionally in the worship services and at the spring children’s musical.
