The Junior Choir (grades 2 – 6) rehearses on Sunday afternoons from September to May and sings in worship about once a month. The choir program seeks to enrich, inspire and nurture spiritual and musical growth of children through learning, sharing and offering music to the glory of God. Each spring the Junior Choir performs a musical production for the congregation and greater community. Productions have included The Sailor’s Bible, Oh, Jonah!, It’s Cool in the Furnace, Life of the Party, The Tale of Three Trees, Table for Five Thousand, Paul & Co., and The Rock Slinger and His Greatest Hit. In June the Junior Choir is invited to attend a week long conference focusing on Worship & Music at Montreat College. The Conference offers a variety of opportunities for musical and spiritual growth, worship, fun and fellowship and performance.
We have a spot for YOU in choir at UPC!

Sacraments and Seasons is this summer’s focus at Montreat Worship & Music Conference. As the church celebrates a new edition of the Book of Common Worship, our theme at the conference this summer is timely. We will be focusing on the church’s sacraments and the seasons we celebrate in the Christian year in worship, songs, and seminars. In addition to the opportunity to sing in outstanding choirs the usual array of interesting courses are available: drumming, art, organ, instrumental ensembles, handbells, vocal techniques, composers’ forum, photography, and more.
UPC’s own, Margaret LaMotte Torrence, will serve as this summer’s Liturgist. CHHS Choral Director and Chapel in the Pines Music Director, Jeremy Nabors, will be the Senior High Choral Director. Adding to the festivities from Chapel Hill the Youth Choirs from United Church of Chapel Hill, University United Methodist Church and Binkley Baptist Church plan to be at the conference this summer the same week we will be there!
