Youth Ensemble

The Sharon Presbyterian Youth Ensemble is a group of middle and high school students with a variety of instrumental and vocal talents, assembled to provide the church an opportunity to enjoy their musical gifts, and for the students to gain experience sharing them.   Leading worship a few times a year, the Youth Ensemble plays a range of musical styles, from old-time gospel favorites and contemporary Christian worship to traditional hymns and classical music.  Rehearsals are scheduled according to voice or instrument played, and next ensemble performance.  All are welcome, and we adjust to your schedules.   Contact Allison Schomer allison@sharonpcusa.org.

Leading our Youth

Relationships are king in the youth world and our program thrives through caring adults who support the lives of young people. Each year we look for adults who can commit to a year of spending time with the youth of this church - key to a healthy youth program and a growing, active group of youth. Pray about it, think about it, and contact Martin Pruitt to find out what's involved.
