Children's Choirs - Palm Sunday 2012


At the direction of Jerry Monds, alongside leaders Kelly Posey and Lara Woodward, choirs will rehearse on a combination of select Sunday evenings from 4:00 – 5:00 P.M. and select Wednesday evenings from 6:00 – 7:00 P.M.

We hope that by offering both Wednesday and Sunday rehearsal options, families feel welcome to engage with children’s choir however it best fits their family schedule. We encourage children to participate as much as their schedule and interest allow.

Choirs will lead the congregation during worship at least once a month.

Here’s the complete 2017 winter/spring schedule


Cherub Singers  (Pre-K 4 and 5 year olds)

Cherub Choir, directed by Kelly Posey, helps children to become more deeply aware of the presence of God through genuine, joyous worship. Cherubs begin each rehearsal with a Bible Story, where children hear and reflect on God’s Word in a meaningful, age-appropriate way. Then, using a variety of instruments (voice, Orff, creative movement), musical styles, and solid focused musical instruction, children learn new ways to worship God through music and voice.

Cherub Singers will share their musical gifts in Worship:
Sunday, February 12 at 11:00 A.M.
Sunday, April 8 at 11:00 A.M.
Sunday, May 14 at 11:00 A.M. (Mother’s Day)


Hosanna Singers (Kindergarten – 1st grade) 

Hosanna Choir, directed by Lara Woodward, teaches children the basics of reading rhythms and melodies, so that they may sing joyfully with their church family in corporate worship. Hosanna singers have the opportunity to play in our FPC Orff-estra; Orff instruments include the xylophone and glockenspiel, which provide children hands-on experience to develop musical intelligence. Like the Cherubs, Hosanna choristers gain both knowledge and deepened awareness of God’s presence through devotions, prayers and spiritual practices centered on God’s Word.

Hosanna Singers will share their musical gifts in Worship:
Sunday, February 12 at 11:00 A.M.
Sunday, March 12 at 8:30 A.M.
Sunday, April 8 at 11:00 A.M.
Sunday, April 30 at 8:30 A.M.
Sunday, May 14 at 11:00 A.M. (Mother’s Day)


Doxology Singers  (2nd grade – 6th grade)

Doxology Choir, directed by Jerry Monds, is an exciting way to prepare children to serve as leaders in worship. Each week, this group explores the hymns of the faith; both learning to sing them, and reflecting on their sound theology, which inspires their devotions and prayers. They practice the various ways that they can lead the congregation in worship – through choral singing, instrumental playing, music reading and exploring Scripture. Doxology choristers hone their individual gifts, both musical and non-musical, so that they may make a valuable contribution to the worship life of our church throughout the year. Doxology members also serve as mentors and role models for Cherubs and Hosanna Singers.

Doxology Singers will share their musical gifts in Worship:
Sunday, February 12 at 11:00 A.M.
Sunday, March 12 at 8:30 A.M.
Sunday, April 8 at 11:00 A.M.
Sunday, April 30 at 8:30 A.M.
Sunday, May 14 at 11:00 A.M. (Mother’s Day)
