Youth Choirs

Chancel Choir (Gr 7 & 8) Cathedral Choir (Gr 9-12)

Serving through Song

Our youth choirs provide a unique musical experience for adolescents to create and build relationships with their peers and their church. Through this special choir program filled with friends and musical challenges, our youth are offered important and wonderful experiences for musical and spiritual growth, as well as an important opportunity for regular service through worship.

Cathedral Choir

High School aged singers from many different schools and musical backgrounds join together each week to sing and serve in this exceptional choir that adds excellence and excitement to our worship services. Cathedral Choir is a musical experience that helps adolescents develop and enrich their own individual faith story. Cathedral Choir, offered at both the Minneapolis and West Campuses, performs during worship most Sundays and rehearses on Wednesday evenings 7:00-8:30pm September through May.
