Children’s Music

Alpharetta Methodist offers a scripturally-based, comprehensive choir program for children from age three through 5th grades.

The Children’s Music Program is designed
to encourage children to grow in faith,
serve in worship and praise through song.

Singing provides the foundation for all of our children’s choirs. Part of every rehearsal is spent learning new songs, reviewing favorite songs and, in the younger choirs, playing singing games. Our goal is to help each child find his or her own unique voice. We believe the ability to “sing your praise” helps children express their faith and share in the joy of worship.

Children in choir also play rhythm instruments and participate in movement activities. They learn new musical and social skills, sing during worship services and participate in church-wide programs like the Children’s Nativity and Children’s Music Sundays. Our older choirs also prepare for musicals and other special programs.

Children’s Choir rehearsals follow the Fulton County School District schedule. Parents will receive a schedule of rehearsal dates and Sundays when specific choirs will sing during the 11:00 traditional worship service.
