Youth Choir

The purpose of this auxiliary is to provide a mechanism for children age 5- 12 to actively participate in the worship experience as they render inspiration through Christian song. More importantly, serving in this capacity fosters an opportunity for young minds to heighten their awareness of the ONE, TRUE LIVING GOD. It also teaches them the importance of servitude.  The choir’s major purpose within the church family will be to provide music for the 11:00 am WORSHIP HOUR during the months of September - April of the following year.

Rehearsal Times 

The BBYC rehearses on 2nd and 3rd Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. in the Main Sanctuary building. Additional rehearsals may be called if necessary. The choir sings every 3rd Sunday during the 11:00 a.m. worship service.
