JOY Singers' Choir
Rehearsals: Wednesdays • 4:00-5:00 p.m.
The JOY Singers' Choir stands for "Just Older Youth" and is for senior adults. This choir rehearses most Wednesday afternoons, 4-5 p.m. This group sets the bar in ministering through music within the community-by singing at retirement homes and assisted-living facilities. Annual mission trips and festivals provide additional ways for the choir's members to develop meaningful relationships through musical experiences.
Youth Praise Team
Students in grades 7-12 may choose to help lead youth worship on Wednesday nights by joining the Youth Praise Team. Sunday afternoon rehearsals prepare this group to be both the instrumentalists and vocalists used in Youth worship. Youth ensembles, instrumental groups, a choir, and even soloists are often pulled together to share on Oakmont's annual Youth Sunday.
