JOIN THE WORSHIP TEAM

We are more than musicians.

We are a family of people who enjoy loving Jesus through the music we offer together.

CHOIR

No audition is necessary to sing in our worship-leading choirs at Mount Vernon. Choirs lead frequently in worship, and both music-readers and non-music-readers are welcome. Choir rehearsal and worship-leading schedule can be found here.

RADIATE YOUTH WORSHIP TEAM

Youth grades 6-12 who are interested in leading worship for Radiate Youth worship gatherings should reach out to our Radiate Youth leadership team. For more information about Youth Ministry at Mount Vernon, visit Radiate Youth.

KIDZ CHOIR & PK PRAISE

Kidz Choir is a music and worship opportunity for children from 1st grade through 5th.

 

PK Praise is a music and worship opportunity for children from age 4 through Kindergarten.

 

Children in both groups will have the opportunity to learn songs that tell of God’s glory; they'll use them to worship Him, and then lead others in worship. Our little singers learn that their voices are special and that God delights in hearing them sing His praises!

Kidz Choir and PK Praise begins on Wednesday, October 6 (6:30-7:45pm weekly). 

If you have questions, please contact us.
