R.A.W. (aka Youth Choir)
“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.”
Psalm 19:14 (NIV 1984)
The Youth Worship Ministries exists to glorify God through authentic biblical worship practices, and develop the corporate and personal worship lives of teenagers. Our purpose is also to discover, cultivate, and empower youth leaders who influence others along the Jesus Way.
This year, Youth choir is going R.A.W. That’s right–we’re Real Authentic Worshipers seeking to make Him known. Youth Choir is going to meet from 1:30-2:30 each Sunday in the Choir Room. The Gathering Band is going to meet for rehearsal from 5:00-6:00 in the Student Building each Wednesday.
For more information about our Youth Choir, contact Emily Klophaus.
