Joyful Noise Choir
Let us sing to the Lord and make a joyful noise! For children in pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade.
Youth in grades 6-12 meet with adult mentors to examine biblical text and explore how it informs their lives today. This is also a time to simply come together as a community and provide support and discover, in community, how faith informs our lives.
Youth Night program for Middle and High School youth kicks off on the first Sunday of October and is offered on every first Sunday for the school year. It is held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Fellowship Hall
The acolyte's role is to carry the light of Christ (symbolized in their lighting wands) into the sanctuary at the beginning of worship to remind us all of God's presence with us. At the conclusion of the service they carry the light of Christ out into the world, following Christ and leading us to carry that light with us in service to the world that God loves.
Children from 2nd grade to 7th grade participate in the program note no acolytes June, July and August. Please contact Di Pagel, Director of Christian Education, if your child would like to be trained as an acolyte.
