Children’s Worship & Music at St. Paul’s

We encourage children to participate in the worship life of the congregation.  The “Children’s Moment” is a much-loved time in the service when children gather near the altar with the pastor to share in an interactive learning experience around one of the readings of the day.  Children may then go to the Nursery, Sunday School, or stay with their parents depending on their age and needs. We believe that experiencing God’s word through our church liturgy and song is an important aspect of a child’s Christian education.  

Under the leadership of our Children’s Choir Director, Holley Haynes, we strive to provide musical opportunities for all children from birth through their teen years.  Infants and toddlers participate in family music making during Sunday School hours.  Children from preschool through elementary school make music during the Children’s Moment during worship, Sunday School, the annual Christmas Pageant, and Vacation Bible School.  

As children grow at St. Paul’s their opportunities for participating in worship through song continues.  Teens are invited to join our Handbell and Adult Choirs.  Teens who study instruments share their musical offerings under the supervision of our Minister of Music.
