Whether you're young or young at heart, Hope has an opportunity for you to participate in Performing Arts! Sing, dance, act, play an instrument ... bring your talents to us. 

Performing Arts is part of our Worship, Music, Media, and the Arts (a.k.a. WMMA) group and make no mistake -- it's a big part! For kids K through 6th grade, we have SONShine Performers. For kids 7th through 12th grade, we have EDGE and EDGE X (crew for those kids who don't want to perform but want to be a part of the performance). For adults, how about being a part of Praise Singers, special vocal solos and/or ensembles, orchestra, or any of our Praise Groups (see below for details).

Lots of options to choose from (click below for details and registration):

  • SONShine Performers
  • the EDGE
  • EDGE X
  • Orchestra
  • Praise Groups including Praise Band, Gospel Folk Band, Gospel Band, Contemporary Gospel Band, and Seek To Be
  • Praise Singers
  • Special Vocal Solos/Ensembles
