Our Mission: The mission of the children’s choirs of Grace Community Church is to provide the youth of our church the opportunity to serve the Lord and His saints—to use their voices to the glory of God and for the encouragement of the church body. We believe this involves coming alongside families by training the students to sing beautifully crafted songs and be instructed as to how to sing them with proper vocal technique. We pray that the lyrics of the songs and hymns they learn will foster solid theological knowledge as well as musical understanding as they grow up learning to serve within the church body, all for the praise of our Master and Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ.
About Us: Our children’s choirs gather on scheduled Sundays from 4:45– 5:55 pm, prior to Adventure Club and the evening service. We will begin the 2022-2023 school year with two choirs: Juniors Choir (3rd-6th) and Youth Choir (7th-9th). We hope to add a new Primary Choir (1st-3rd) beginning in January.
Juniors Choir (4th-6th + 3rd graders in the fall): Children in 3rd-6th grade are welcome to join us at the beginning of each semester for an all-participation choir. Rehearsals will be held throughout September and October, and the children will sing mid-October for one of our church services. Flyers will be sent home through children’s ministry with specific dates for this opportunity.
Juniors Concert Choir: Auditions will be held in early October for the Thanksgiving and Christmas choir. Only children who have sung in the all-participation choir will be eligible for auditioning. Our auditioned choir plans to sing on the Sunday prior to Thanksgiving as well as participate in the annual Grace Community Church Christmas Concerts. Spring information TBA.
Youth Choir (7th-9th): We are thrilled to add a youth choir to our children’s choir ministry this year! Our first rehearsal will be in early/mid September. Our students will be preparing to sing for a fellowship group in mid/late October, as well as serve for one of our fellowship group Christmas parties in December. This will allow our singers time to mesh as a group and gain confidence in their own singing, allowing for further ministry within the church as time progresses. More information will be sent home through student ministries. Spring information TBA.
Primary Choir (1st-3rd): We hope to add a non-auditioned 1st-3rd grade choir beginning Spring 2023! More information will be sent home through children’s ministry in early January.
