First Beats Choir

This choir for children in grades 1 through 6 is led by Minister of Music Jacqueline Stilger. Practices are on Tuesday afternoons from 4:15-5:30 p.m., September through May. The choir sings at the 11 a.m. service approximately six times a year. 

A popular part of the children's vocal training is participating in two musicals a year, one during the Advent season and one at the end of the program year.  This year's musical, "The Rock Slinger and His Greatest Hit," was performed during worship on Sunday, June 4, 2017. The musical was also performed on the Friday before for the families of the children that included a potluck dinner.
