Youth Singers is open to youth in grades 7 - 12. This is not an auditioned group. The Choir is directed by Rev. Steve Harter, Minister of Music and Arts at FUMC since 1997. He also guides their spiritual formation and appreciation for the word of God through music. This choir leads worship every Sunday, August through June, at the 8:00 am traditional worship service. They practice Sunday afternoons 3:45 - 5:00 pm in the Choir Room in the lower level.
Youth Singers kick off their fall program with a workshop during which they prepare music for a number of upcoming Sunday's. Later in the fall the Youth Singers have a retreat at FUMC's John Wesley Ranch and Retreat Center where they rehearse for upcoming worship services, bond with one another and take time to enjoy God's creation at our ranch south of Divide, Colorado.
A much anticipated highlight of this ministry is the annual Summer Tour. The Choir has been to New York City, Seattle and lots of places in between over the years. Rev. Harter leads the trip and has just as much fun on tour as the kids.
The Youth Chorale is chosen by audition from members of the Youth Singers and also directed by Rev. Harter. They practice Sunday afternoons in the Choir Room. They perform during worship services and on tour.
Bell Choirs are also open to youth. Please check out the Handbell Choirs for more information.
