Children’s Choir/Youth Ensemble Mission Statement
Our calling is to use our musical gifts to tell about God’s abundant love. We believe that we are each uniquely gifted by God to do the work of music ministry. We acknowledge that our gifts come from God and that our joy in music also comes from God. When we, as a young person in St. Mark’s community accept the privilege and the responsibility of leading in worship through music, we are showing our desire to serve and be a part of our church life. We believe that Christian truths are expressed in great hymns and songs, and carefully taught as to text as well as music, will be a fertile source of Christian education. By singing this text from our hearts we add a quality of joy and enthusiasm to community worship, which cannot be gained in any other way. We promise to develop our musical skills, and have a goal of sharing this gift through self-expression and spiritual growth. We know that we must serve out of a sense of gratitude to God for what he has done for us and this requires a certain level of commitment from all our members. Most importantly, we believe that our ministry as children choir members or youth choir members, exists to minister to and bless the Church of St. Mark’s the very best we can, so that we may all worship more completely by praising God in song with all we do being dedicated to the glory of God.
