Joy Singers choirs offer many opportunities to our members:

  • Seek to glorify God through singing and fellowship
  • Use proper vocal techniques to sing quality choral literature
  • Build music literacy skills
  • Develop a sense of teamwork and personal responsibility
  • Meet and make new friends
  • Share God’s message of love and grace through ministry outreaches and performances


Joy Singers is made up of families who volunteer their time and talents to help teach children music. The directors, pianists, coordinators, etc. are all volunteer positions. We need the help of all families to make Joy Singers possible.  We need parents to watch directors’ and assistants’ children in the nursery during rehearsals, set up for Friday rehearsals, and help set the stage on performance days. Every family is asked to sign up for 4 responsibilities for the year. See Choir Requirements for more details.
