LUMIN8 Children’s Choir

LUMIN8 Children’s Choir begins September 15, 6:00-6:40pm, room 251

august 2011

There’s a lot of power in a name. It can convey identity, purpose, and direction. So what is the meaning behind the name LUMIN8? It is a form of the word, “illuminate,” which means to brighten with light; to light up. The purpose of LUMIN8 is to brighten our dark world with the light of God’s Word and the message of His love through music. The “8” in LUMIN8 is a reference to Psalms 8 (verse two), where the Psalmist says that children have a unique calling to speak God’s praise. “From the lips of children and infants, You have ordained praise….”


LUMIN8 will proclaim God’s glory in a variety of performances throughout the year: Sunday morning services, Child Dedication song, a Christmas program, and a spring concert. At the end of the year, the choir will record and produce a CD of original music written by the Children’s Ministry. The CD will be distributed to families within our ministry, and made available to Calvary Church as a whole. Songs will include the James memorization songs, the “big church” sermon series song, a song that summarizes the subject matter of our Wednesday WOW program, and several others directly related to our programming. LUMIN8 meets for practice on Wednesday night from 6:00-6:40pm. Children also participating in the WOW Wednesday programming, will be taken to their elective at 6:50pm. Registration for LUMIN8 is included on the Children’s Ministry registration form. (616) 956-9377 ||
