Gay Street UMC

Children and Youth Choirs

Mount Vernon, Ohio

The children’s music ministry of Gay Street United Methodist Church enables children to share in the leadership of worship through music. The Rainbow Singers, Sunbeam Choir, and Youth Choir participate in worship each month during the school year. The choirs also present music for a special service in December and are responsible for leading the congregation in our annual "Children’s Day" worship in the spring.

To instill the responsibility all Christians have in ministering to their church family and their community is a major emphasis of the ministry, as well as to educate the children in the scriptures and the tenants of their faith.

The director, accompanists, parents, and helpers endeavor to provide a safe environment that fosters the development of musical skills and literacy through song, movement, drumming, rhythm instruments, and choir chimes. During weekly rehearsals, the children explore and experience varied repertoire and worship expressions.

Ages 4-12th grade are welcome. The children have an after school style program with snacks to balance choir time. Join us for music and growing in faith.

Director: Mrs. Suzy Springer
