Children's Choir of Africa     

Igniting Hearts to Worship

Connecting Hearts to Serve

Sunday, January 25

6:00 PM, Sanctuary

The choir will give a preview of their performance at both services on Sunday morning. They will come back that night to lead evening worship at 6 p.m. Please bring desserts for a reception in the fellowship hall following evening worship. Come out and support these godly young people!

Daraja means “bridge” in Swahili, and the Choir, made up of 23 children from Uganda and Kenya, serve as a bridge to connect the people of Africa and America. This is a life-changing opportunity for these children to learn and experience American culture, as many of them have never experienced life outside of their own countries. At the same time, Americans have the opportunity to step into the lives of these children by hearing their testimonies and experiencing traditional African song and dance.
