Children & Youth
Wee, Cherub, & Chapel Choirs
Music and worship arts are an integral part of our children’s ministry here at Pine Valley, and there are opportunities for children of all ages to express their faith and lead worship. All three of our graded choirs meet at 4:00 on Sundays, sing monthly in worship, and present a major musical production each Christmas and spring. The Wee Cherub choir (ages 3-4) introduces our youngest singers to playing color-coded bells, singing simple songs, and age appropriate worship. In addition to singing, members of the Cherub Choir (grades K-2) and Chapel Choir (grades 3-5) are given opportunities to glorify God by participating in dance, drama, and outreach into the community.

IGNITE Youth Worship
IGNITE (In God, Nothing Is Too Extreme) is the PVUMC Worship Arts Ministry for youth, led by P.J. Bolduc. IGNITE is open to all youth in grades 6-12 who would like to use the performing arts (singing, instruments, dance, and drama) as a way to worship and to minister to others, but you do not have to be a great singer, play an instrument, dance, or act to be part of this ministry. IGNITE is about passing the flame of Christ to others who need it most, and having fun in the process!
IGNITE rehearsal times High School IGNITE 5-6 Sundays Sanctuary; Middle School IGNITE 6:30-7:30 Sundays Sanctuary.
Each summer, IGNITE goes on a Music in Missions trip to present a musical to homeless shelters, nursing homes, children’s homes, and to other folks who are hungry for the message of Jesus Christ. A highlight of the 2011 trip was having the opportunity to present a portion of their musical at the NCCUMC Annual Conference at the Raleigh Civic Center. Past trips include Williamsburg, VA; Orlando, FL; Washington, DC; Asheville, NC; Hershey/Harrisburg, PA; Atlanta, GA; New York City; and Pigeon Forge, TN.
GLOW ministry is a novel worship art form – black light hand mime – in which black lights and white gloves are used to create images and words set to Christian music. The group was formed in the fall of 2007. Since then, the group, which is an acronym for God Lights Our World, has performed at various churches and for numerous events including the Harmony for Humanity concert in Wilmington, Pilgrimage and the UMW Annual Conference in Fayetteville, the Rockingham District Lay Celebration in Laurinburg, and at SonPower National Youth Choir Conference in Orlando.
