Pasadena Covenant Church has long been known for its creative use of the arts—dance, drama, visual arts, music—in Sunday morning worship. We invite you to add your voice!

Worship & Arts Team

This Ministry Team meets quarterly to contemplate worship themes and brainstorm about how the use of the arts might add to the bringing of the Word to the congregation on Sunday mornings. Writers, actors, dancers, liturgists and artists of all kinds are welcome. Meetings TBA on Sundays from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m.

Children's Choir

The Pasadena Covenant Children's Choir sings monthly on Sunday mornings and performs a musical in the spring. During rehearsals, children learn singing technique, xylophone and other percussion instrument parts, music reading and sight-singing, and play music games. The choir is open to all children in grades 1 through 6, including those from the community. It is not necessary to attend Pasadena Covenant--all are welcome! Rehearsals are from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m, beginning September 16th, 2015.
