We believe that every child is a unique and beloved individual created by God. We welcome children with all ranges of musical abilities to our choirs. We are also committed to including children with special needs in our music program. Please help your child’s choir teacher know the best methods of teaching your child. All children, ages 3 through 6th grade are welcome!

God’s Flock (Children ages 3 years)- This group is introduced to music through simple songs, stories, and fun musical games.

Joyful Noise Singers Choir (Children ages 4 & 5/Kindergarten) – This group is introduced to music through the use of simple children’s songs and fun musical games.  This choir sings in worship, typically once a month.

Music Makers (Children grades 1-2) – These young musicians learn the basics of music reading through singing and playing musical instruments. This choir sings in worship, typically once a month. 

Chapel Choir (Children grades 3-6) – This choral experience for elementary children continues to challenge the growing musician through singing, playing instruments, and musical games. Choristers sing in worship once a month, as well as participate in the Feast of Lights at Christmas. Each spring, children alternate participating in a children’s choir festival or presenting a musical.

Children’s Chimes (Grades 4th-6th) in the hand bell room, behind the Sanctuary Choir room – This group for beginning hand bell ringers rehearses in the fall for 8 weeks, and again in the spring for 8 weeks. Children’s Chimes play in worship twice during the year.

Parent and Child Music – The Parent and Child Music program has taken many forms over the years! Currently, music teachers are sharing the joy of music and God’s love through song, puppets, instruments, books and scarves twice a month during the 9:15 childcare on Sunday mornings. See Belmont’s newsletters and Children’s Ministry updates for specific dates. Also, if you would like to schedule a “Music on Wheels” session for your infant or preschooler, please contact Amy Cooper (amy@belmontumc.org)  for an individual meeting.

In choir, we make great friendships, sing, play instruments, act, and play musical games, just to name a few. Your choir friends will be learning new music right along with you, so you won’t feel out of place.

Please fill out the 2024 Childrens Ministry registration form so that we can have all pertinent chorister information, including any allergies, or special needs that we should know about.

Contact Amy Cooper, Director of Children’s Music, for more information.
