Celebration! is our children’s choir, for those in kindergarten through 2nd grade. These children learn their songs primarily by rote. This group rehearses on Wednesday evenings in the Music Room from 5:30 to 6:00, September through April. They will sing at various worship services every 4 to 6 weeks. Each rehearsal includes sharing time to foster fellowship, and ends with prayers. The children learn that they have been given gifts from God and singing praises to him is one way to give back. A couple of their special services include a year-end Saturday service where they combine with the Jubilation! choir to provide all the special music (gathering songs, Offering, and Communion), as well as lead the congregation on one or more of the hymns for the service. The combined choirs also lead on Christmas Eve by providing special music in one of the early services designed specifically for children.

Kindergarten–2nd grade
Rehearses Wednesdays, 5:30–6:00 p.m.

High Impact High Impact is our high school worship and praise team. Using vocalists, drummers, and guitar and bass players – as well as keyboard and piano players – we seek to glorify God through our music. Whether it be as an Offertory at worship, special music during Communion, or leading one of our contemporary services in its entirety, we use our gifts to give honor and praise to God. Rehearsals are on Sunday evenings in the Sanctuary, from 7:00 to 7:45. We participate in worship in one of the above ways once a month during the school year. All students in 9th through 12th grade who can read music are welcome!
