St. Nicholas Choir
Wednesdays, 5:15 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Grades 1-3. Our choir for younger children will focus on vocal development through singing hymns, anthems and other songs. Handbells and other instruments may be used in teaching music reading skills. They sing occasionally throughout the year for the 10:30 service, and sometimes with the St. Andrew Choir. Directed by Andrea Spraggins.
St. Andrew Choir
Wednesdays, 5:00 p.m. – 6:10 p.m.
Grades 4-8. St. Paul’s choir for older children and youth involves vocal training through learning hymns, service music, and anthems. They often sing with the Senior Choir or with the St. Nicholas Choir. Choristers learn about the music of the church, the liturgy and the church year, and study the scriptural basis of anthem and hymn texts. Music reading skills will be taught, in part with curriculum and materials based on the Royal School of Church Music training system. Choristers may have the opportunity to attend a week-long RSCM summer camp. Directed by Keith Reas.

There may be some take-home work to reinforce knowledge learned through our rehearsal time. Directed by Andrea Spraggins. Wednesdays, 6:15 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
WindRingers Handbell Choir
Sundays, 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Retreats and social events throughout the year enhance the fun and fellowship of this choir. Directed by Andrea Spraggins.
