FAITH FORMATION MINISTRY: MUSIC FOR ALL AGES
They say that those who create music, pray twice. At Elim, we value the way that music can open the door to experience God in a multitude of ways. Our community has invited people of all ages and abilities to create and enjoy music together. To find out more about one of the groups below, or to offer your musical gifts to worship or play, please contact our church office and we will help you connect with our staff musicians.
CHILDREN'S CHOIR (pictured)
Our primary focus is children ages 3-7, but older children who want to sing with us are welcome! Miss Vicki mixes fun and music into rehearsals and performances. Sessions are held in the fall (October to December) and in the spring (February to April).
CHILDREN OF LIGHT
Any children entering 2nd-5th grade who love to sing might be interested to know that the “Children of Light” choir will be rekindled in September! The plan is for them to sing once a month at the 10:40am service. Please contact Cathe Kiler, Elim’s music director, if you have a child who would be interested.
CHANCEL CHOIR Rehearsals: Wednesday, 5:30pm (not during summer) Our 9:00 am worship choir—open to all who enjoy singing!
WORSHIP TEAM Rehearsals: Mondays, 7:30pm
This group leads worship at the 10:40am service every other week.
FESTIVAL CHOIR (pictured)
Two sessions a year: one during Lent before Palm/Passion Sunday and one for about 6 weeks before an Advent Sunday.
New ding-a-lings welcome - helpful if you can read music but not necessary. Contact Cathe Kiler if you would like to participate in this session.
WAVES OF GRACE
This group leads worship every other week at the 10:40am service.
The unique blending of acoustic, electric instrumentation, drums, vocal harmonies, and World Music percussion, complements the service music and is designed to encourage participation by worshipers regardless of their musical background.
On other Sundays, we have other groups of musicians that lead worship. Contact our Music Director, Cathe Kiler if you are interested in participating.
