The ESUMC children’s choir was established in 1992 for children ages 5 through 12. The choir is under the leadership of Deborah Koll-Petty. Most rehearsals are Sundays immediately after Sunday School.

The purpose of our Children’s Choir is threefold:

1) to give children who enjoy singing an opportunity to do so;

2) to give them the opportunity to praise and glorify the Lord in their own special way within the worship service at least four times a year (e.g., Harvest Festival, Christmas Program, Palm Sunday, Music Sunday); and

3) to help them develop their singing and musical skills for the future, at which time they will hopefully sing in the youth choir and then in the Chancel Choir and African Singers and Drummers.

We have many children in our congregation who love to sing, and we’d like to have them all join the children’s choir!
