Children’s & Youth Choirs

Wesley Monumental has a vibrant music program for our children and youth from age 3 through 12th grade.  Whether singing with their own age group, together as a whole group, or along with the adult chancel choir, our children and youth learn to offer praise to God through song and to lead worship through music.

Singing at Music and Worship Arts Week

The Wesley Youth Choir sings a variety of music from traditional to contemporary.  They sing regularly in worship and also for special community events such as fundraisers and nursing home holiday parties.  Members of the Youth Choir enjoy attending the annual Music and Worship Arts Week at Lake Junaluska, NC every summer.

"I like choir because I like playing the chimes and singing to God in our church."
