  1. Re: Worship and Music - Joyful Voices (not Angelic Voices) is for Y in grades K-2, and Voices of Praise is for Y in grades 3-7. "For the Band" is really "Youth Band" and is a function of the Youth Department and accepts anyone in MS or HS. Chancel Choir is open to anyone in 10th grade through adult. Most participants are indeed 50 and above, but younger adults who might sing have been tapped to teach Sunday School at that hour.
