Children’s Music

The various groups participate in worship several times a year including Christmas Eve, Palm Sunday, the Spring Musical, and Mother’s Day. Information and registration forms are available outside the bell room (Room 215) as well as online. Rehearsals start in September; all are welcome! Contact Jennifer Burke for more information.
