Children's Choir Practice
Children ages 5-18 are welcome to join our Children's Choir.

The heart of a children's choir is in the community building and skill development that occurs. Choral singing builds self-confidence, memory skills, social development, and emotional expression. Music is fun, first! It is about enjoying the experience of singing.

Children's choir meets approximately twice a month in the Sanctuary and is directed by Kallin Johnson.
