Growing and Serving Through Choir:
Along with Sunday School, one of the greatest opportunities for a child to grow in faith is to join a children's choir. It also is one of the few opportunities that a child may offer in service to the Lord, church and community.
Our singers give generously of their time and talents and are able to be a part of something bigger than themselves at a young age.  We have devotionals as a group before our rehearsals begin on Sunday Nights. 
Parents of the Angel and Junior Choirs are encouraged to volunteer to help with the meal on Sunday nights by collecting the money ($3/child) and going out and picking up the meal. We usually have pizza or sandwiches from a carry out restaurant close-by.

(Meal suggestions welcome!)

Our Music Staff provides young singers opportunities to develop:

  • Singing & Musical Skills
  • Listening Skills
  • The Ability to Focus
  • Self-discipline
  • Group Cooperation and Social Skills
  • Group focus & Team-Oriented Goals
  • Leadership Skills
  • A Deeper Understanding of Worship

JAM, previously the Angel Choir, is our early childhood group. The children in this group are taking the first steps to glorify God through song. They are learning musical concepts, how to use their voices, and how to work with other singers in harmony. They sing at least twice a semester and for other special events
Ages: K-4 - Grade 1
Rehearsals:  Sundays from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. Gray Music Room - Sanctuary Basement (Supper is included $3/child)

The Treblemakers: 
The Treblemakers, previously the Junior Choir, provide leadership through song in all three worship services at some point in the school year. These singers perform about three times a semester on Sunday mornings, as well as other special events like our Annual Christmas Concert and the Children's Service at 5:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve each year.  Eastminster has a good balance of boys and girls in this choir and they seem to be having a lot of fun! 
Ages:  Second through Fifth Graders
Rehearsals: Sundays from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. (supper included $3/child)
