    Kidsing

    KidSing's mission is to equip and encourage a new generation of worshipful hearts. In a fun, energetic environment, we sing and use a variety of instruments, rhythm activities and games to encourage kids to love worship and music in all its forms. We strive to engender a life-long love of worshipping Jesus! It is for kids 3 years (by September 1) through 6th grade.

    KidSing is coming back with a twist on Wednesdays this January! We will have a time of worship followed by fun with instruments like chimes and handbells, as well as preparing songs to share with our church family on Sunday mornings. Come and join us as we worship together!

    Led by Susan Larkin

Some members of the CAROLS production join our choir and orchestra just for CAROLS while others choose to be part of the nativity cast, crew, or greeter team. Please plan to join us this year.
