"From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise..." (Psalm 8:2, NIV).
Children's choirs are always a blessing to me--voices happy and loud, with no hint of reservation or self-consciousness. They are as much fun to watch as they are to listen to.
Singing with a church group is not only a fun activity for kids--it is also a discipleship-building experience. The lyrics of Christian songs stay ingrained in their minds for years. And, scripture-based songs can make it easy to learn portions of the Word.
On special occasion, my home church combines the children's choir with the adult choir for a selection or two. It is a delightful treat for everyone, and it teaches the children that ministry participation involves people of every age.
Do you have good stories of children's choir experiences? Feel free to share them in the comments. They will bring joy to all of us!
