A Choir for Everyone
Autumn at St. John’s is a special time of new beginnings. Kids are back in school, the program year is kicking off, and soon hot summer nights will be replaced with a cool crispness in the air.
This autumn is also a season for new beginnings and a fresh start for our church music program. Our Choir Camp/VBS gave us all a preview of a renewed energy for our children’s choirs. Next week we welcome back our Chancel Choir and begin regular rehearsals for our Primary and Junior choirs. In October we will “ring in” autumn with our Handbell Choir.
Consider this open invitation, regardless of age, skill level, or musical ability to join a choir and experience the joy of singing and building of community that is unique to choral music. There is a choir for everyone!
Here is a listing of our choirs. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or want to join. Come sing (or ring) with us!
Primary Choir (4 - 5 PM, Wednesdays) Our Pre-K to 2nd grade singers will learn the joy of singing and being a part of a musical team. They will offer special music during worship on a monthly schedule. Snack provided! Begins September 7th.
Junior Choir (5 - 6 PM, Wednesdays) Our 3rd-6th grade choir will continue to grow their love of singing, while learning basic musicianship and singing skills in a fun and enriching environment.
