Children’s Music

The children’s choirs of Fairfax UMC provide a great opportunity for young people to learn musical skills in a Christ-centered environment. We offer three children’s ensembles in which students learn the power of serving God through praise and worship. In each ensemble, children learn and develop both their individual and corporate musical skills in a fun and supportive atmosphere, building relationships and joining in Christian fellowship with each other. Throughout the year, the students will have several opportunities to offer their musical gifts in praise to God during worship.

Online registration is available here. Paper forms may be found in the church Narthex and music wing. For more information contact Rachel Ackerman, Associate Director of Music.

Rehearsals Begin October 15th.
