The YOUTH CHOIR doesn’t just sing: we move, we write music, we record music, and we even get to use incredible music technology, all to the glory of God! Come sing, create, and have a great time with a choir like no other choir you’ve EVER been in. Rehearsals are leading up to participating in worship, then this group takes a break. Watch the calendar for details.
