Youth Choir 1st Church Stockbridge

Welcome
Youth Choir meets from 11:15AM to Noon most Sundays directly after Sunday School ends in the smaller Sunday School room.  The children perform music in the Worship Service on various Sundays every few weeks.  Children attending Sunday School should stay right in the smaller room when it ends to enjoy the Choir snack and then start rehearsing.  Children not in Sunday School should be brought or sent to Youth Choir by a parent at 11:15AM.  Please join us at 11:55AM to hear what we have been working on and pick up your child.  Thank you.

Below are music links and lyrics to practice with at home.  It is especially helpful (and fun) for pre-readers to do some singing at home with an adult to help them with the lyrics.

I will eventually be posting the sheet music here to use at home for music readers.  We do have actual paper copies of the sheet music at rehearsal.  Due to the nature of YC with children attending on different Sundays, the sheet music will stay with the director unless a special request has been made to take it home by an adult.

For performing, please have your children dress "nicely" with either black pants or skirts and a solid colored top of any color or a solid colored dress.  Dresses and skirts should be finger tip length or longer.  At some point we may be looking into purchasing YC t-shirts &/or robes.

Each Sunday we have snack & greatly appreciate a snack providing adult volunteer.  Snack should be an easy and fast to eat but yummy treat & a pitcher of water with paper cups, small paper plates and napkins from the church kitchen.  These yummies should be in the room before YC starts please.  Thank you, Amy Callahan, for volunteering to bring snack this Sunday 9/24/17.
 
These are demonstration links from the music ordering company.  Some are not the complete song and some start in places other than the beginning - but they do give you the idea of how the song goes so that you can sing at home a bit.  Please let me know if you have trouble with the links:

Love Round Lyics
Sing once all together: 
Love, love, love love, Christians this is your call:  Love your neighbor as yourself, for God loves us all. 
Begin Round: 
Use lyrics above. Sing round twice. Part One begins with 4 “loves” then Part Two begins while Part One continues. 
All Together: 
Love your neighbor as yourself, love your neighbor as yourself, for God loves us all; 
God loves us all: for God loves us all!

We Come To Your Table Lord Lyrics
1. We come to your table Lord. You have called us, we are yours.
You will nourish, you will lead. Giving every gift we need.
Chorus:
Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. The Bible tells me so.
2. You have chosen us to be members of one family.
In your love you made us all, giving strength to hear your call
3. You, our shepherd, we your sheep. Your Word in our hearts to keep.
Hear His good news, hear His call. Spreading joy and love to all.
Chorus
3. Make us, Lord, your servants true, living with a faith renewed.
You have made us all to be light for all the world to see.
Chorus
Dismissal: Go now, children, hear good news. God's Word living close to you.
He is calling you in love, with the message from above.
Chorus
Descant for small group to sing during verses 3 & 4:
Alleluia, Alleluia
Alleluia, Alleluia

I'm Gonna Sing Lyrics
I'm gonna sing when the spirit says sing. I'm gonna sing when the spirit says sing. I'm gonna sing when the spirit says sing and obey the spirit of the Lord.
Sing, sing, sing (Clap hands 3 times: clap, clap, clap) Sing, sing sing (clap, clap, clap).  Sing, sing, sing (clap, clap, clap). Sing, sing, sing.

I'm gonna shout when the spirit says shout. (Spoken: Hallelujah!) I'm gonna shout when the spirit says shout. (Amen).  I'm gonna shout when the spirit says shout (Hallelujah!) and obey the spirit of the Lord (Amen)
Shout, shout, shout (clap, clap clap). Shout, shout, shout (clap, clap clap). Shout, shout, shout (clap, clap clap). Shout, shout, shout.

I'm gonna pray when the spirit says pray.  I'm gonna pray when the spirit says pray.  I'm gonna pray when the spirit says pray and obey the spirit of the Lord
(Descant Happens at the same time as the above line) The spirit says pray, the spirit says pray, the spirit says pray.  I'm gonna pray, pray, pray.
Pray, pray, pray (clap, clap, clap).  Pray, pray, pray (cap, clap, clap). Pray, pray, pray (clap, clap, clap).  Pray, pray, pray.

Sing, sing sing (clap, clap, clap). Shout, shout, shout (clap, clap, clap). Pray, pray, pray (clap, clap, clap). And obey the spirit of the Lord.
(Shout: Amen!)
