Under Authority Student Choir

Under Authority (UA) is a Worship Arts student choir ministry that teaches students in Grades 6-12 what it means to live a life as a worshiper of God. Under Authority, which meets each Sunday night at 5 pm in the CORE during the fall and spring semesters, sings a variety of music styles but leans toward the current worship music of today. UA leads worship for the church family on select Sunday mornings and evenings during fall and spring, sings off campus each semester at other churches, community events, or retirement/nursing homes and takes a choir tour/mission trip during the spring semester each year.
