Children’s Chorus

Directed by Greg Halterman, this is a choir for children ages 5–14 (Kindergarten–7th grade). During the school year, they sing occasionally in worship and present a large-scale musical at Christmas and again in the spring. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings, September to May, from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in Room 4.

The children’s chorus, in the spring musical “Esther,” declares to God that, “Help us and guide us we pray! We put our lives in your hands.”


GRADES 8th–12th

Dinner / 6:30–7:00 p.m.
Group Time / 7:00–8:00 p.m.

Our Wednesday night youth program intends to nurture curiosity about current events and help them with the challenges of 21st century teenagers. Through curriculum curated to reflect topics relevant to today, our youth are encouraged to participate in healthy, honest discussion about their concerns and struggles. As well, twice a month our youth head “off-campus” to engage in various service projects throughout the Des Moines metro area. Projects include working alongside other youth groups at Meals from the Heartland, sorting donated food at a DMARC food pantry or warehouse or tidying up the facility at the Animal Rescue League.
