Adult volunteers provide invaluable assistance during Children’s Choir School classes. Duties include escorting children from Sanctuary to classrooms, recording attendance, distributing and collecting materials, helping children with any personal issues that arise during rehearsal, and assisting with robing and processing on worship Sundays.

To maintain a healthy, safe environment, we require all volunteers to complete the Volunteer Approval Process. To learn more, contact Carol Baker.

Thank you for your cooperation and participation!

  4. The skills of music fundamentals and ensemble techniques;
  5. Tradition through learning of scripture, sacrament, doctrine and history;
  6. Teamwork, fellowship and positive relationships (peer-to-peer and inter-generational);
