Wednesdays, 6:45 – 7:30 pm

The children in this choir continue to develop pitch accuracy, the ability to blend their voices with others, and learn to respond to the gestures of the director. As they learn how to praise God with their voices they will also be reinforcing the elements of melody, rhythm and musical form. The Cherubs sing in worship every month and some holidays.
