It’s Time to Join the Children’s Choir!

The choirs share their songs in worship at least once per month; Fall 2018 Choir Calendar.  Additionally, they will work on songs for the Family Christmas Eve worship service.

Children spend time with all ages and  also by age-group during rehearsals.

The Hosanna Choir is for children ages 4 through younger elementary and the Doxology Choir is for older elementary. The directors are Kelly Posey and Brianna Mehler.

Why should your child join Children’s Choir?

The goal of the Children’s Choir Ministry at First Presbyterian Church is to build and nurture lifelong faith through actively praising and worshiping God with the gift of singing.

  • Children will learn another form of worshiping God. As St. Augustine once wrote, “To sing is to pray twice.”
  • Children learn various aspects of the worship service and come to have a greater understanding of what each part of the service means. They also come to understand music’s role in praising God.
  • Children participate in various devotional activities during rehearsals to strengthen their faith and foundation.
  • Children learn how to work with one another as part of a group. Choirs are the strongest when every member works together for the good of the whole.
  • Children gather a great base of musical knowledge with our wonderful directors. Children spend time not only singing, but learning the basics of music reading. They develop their singing voices and gain an appreciation for music.

It is really fun! Our directors love music and spending time with the children. They aim to make it an enjoyable experience for all and develop a lifelong desire for music and worship.
