Kindred Voices
 
This 60-voice adult choir is geared toward those who have had little or no singing experience, and those who simply want to enjoy singing easier music in a choir with fewer performance responsibilities than the Sanctuary Choir. Due to a shorter rehearsal time, the music tends to be of easy to moderate difficulty and includes world music, spirituals, broadway and traditional anthems, all sung in a fun, supportive environment. Kindred voices sings in church approximately one Sunday per month.

Primary Choir
 
The Children’s Choir is open to all children age 5 – 3rd grade. Its purpose is to introduce each child to the interactive qualities of singing and movement, spending time finding their voice, developing their inner rhythm, experiencing the joy of making music while learning songs that express our faith.
 
This choir rehearses from 11:00am-11:30am in room 204.  If your child attends the 11:30 RE session they will arrive in class with the other children coming from ‘big church’.  If your child attends the 10:00am RE session they will be picked up by volunteers 15 minutes prior to the end of RE. If possible, we encourage your children to attend the 11:30am session in order to enjoy the full class time.
