The Chapel Choir is a youth choir for students grades 9 - 12 and has been a tradition in this church for decades. The choir rehearses every Wednesday night throughout the school year and sings every Sunday at the 9:30 service. The choir year is highlighted by an annual Choir Tour, usually during Spring Break but in the summer in 2020, in which the Choir travels to a destination in the United States singing in churches throughout the tour and having a great time together.

Our Confirmation preparation program is designed for 7th and 8th graders. We meet during the school year to discuss various aspects of faith in order to prepare students to become full members of the church. Students attend classes on Sundays, volunteer with our Sunday School program, acolyte, sing in the Connection Choir, or help set up with PADS. Registration costs help cover curriculum materials and the cost of food and activities.
