Junior Choir

The Junior Choir of our church is an integral part of our Church Choir; it has added a sense of joy and commitment among the members of the Church Choir. For us as the Choir of East Parade Malayalam Pastorate, our commitment to the Junior Choir originates in a holy calling. It is clearly a calling from God. Telling us very quietly, but very persistently that this is THE THING He has created us to do for His Kingdom. It is more than dynamic levels and singing posture and so much more than the next performance. We believe that MUSIC is God’s tool to bring little souls and even whole families into the Kingdom. It is teaching these little ones what it means to really worship. We are helping them to understand that God inhabits the praises of His people and that those aren’t just pretty words. He really does live where people are praising Him; He manifests His presence when we praise Him with pure hearts.

The Junior Choir has strength of 70 children ranging from the age group of 4 years to 14 years. The children have regular practices on every Sunday after the church service; they also participate actively in the Church Services on every Sunday.

The Junior Choir has enabled the children to hone their musical talent and also gained a great deal of confidence in their singing ability. To the church, the Junior Choir has brought in freshness and added vigor to congregational singing.

Goals

  • To teach children the core of hymns and spiritual songs, which help them to learn the music of the faith and begin to trust, that God’s promises are theirs.
  • To help children develop good singing and musicianship skills to foster the enjoyment of singing.
  • To provide opportunities to grow in faith through fellowship with other children.

One intangible but substantial benefit we reap from the junior Choir is that the children learn that they are part of the worship services and that realization is likely to remain with them through out their life.
