Advent now has a children’s choir! The young singers made their debut at the All Saints Day Service on November 1. They will continue to practice and perform in the coming months under the joint direction of Evelyn Fogg and Jeff Poston.

Singing is just the latest way in which Advent’s children are taking an active role in the worship service. This is the second academic year that the elementary and Confirmation class students have take turns serving as the crucifer and banner bearers on Sundays and for other services. Ben Bensinger made a special wooden proessional cross just the right weight and dimensions for little hands last year; and the pint-sized banners seen here that the children carry up the aisle are their own creations. Made in Sunday School as a surprise for the congregation, they debuted at the Easter service last spring.
