Youth Music


First Presbyterian offers choir and worship band programs for youth in grades 6th – 12th. These groups lead in worship and special events during the year. In February, an entire Sunday morning worship is dedicated to our youth program.

Youth Music Opportunities

Youth choir strives to improve musicianship while singing a varied repertoire. The Youth Choir learns and prepares songs to sing monthly during Sunday worship, for the annual LoveFeast service, the 9 p.m. Christmas Eve service, Youth-led Worship and for the annual visit to Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church. The choir will learn to read and identify more advanced rhythms and musical notations; will sing sacred music in various styles; and will explore a cappella singing.
