Children’s & Youth Choirs

Wesley Monumental has a vibrant music program for our children and youth from age 3 through 12th grade. Over 100 children participate in our weekly choral program. Whether singing with their own age group, together as a whole group, or along with the adults, our children and youth love offering praise to God through song, learning more about God, and leading worship with hymns.
