This is how Crescendo works at Faith Lutheran Church. Your congregation can shape Crescendo to meet your own needs and resources. We can help with resources to get your congregation started. If you are interested in starting Crescendo in your congregation, click on "Church Start Up."
A youth (Grade 1 to 12) schedules to play or sing a musical piece during the collection of the offering at Faith Lutheran Church on a Sunday morning. The musical piece can be presented as a solo, duet or small group. See our Guidelines page for more detailed information.
The youth chooses a charity, non-profit agency which will receive $50 from Faith on behalf of the youth performer.
The youth attends worship on the scheduled Sunday and performs the musical offering. The charity for which the youth is playing will be announced. A check for $50 will be mailed to the charity in the name of the youth.
The youth's name joins the list of other Crescendo youth enabling him/her to list Crescendo on any resume, college or scholarship application. Each youth will receive a gift t-shirt with the Crescendo logo.
With a single performance, worship grows, youth have an opportunity to use current talents for the greater good, and a financial gift helps a charity continue to do good work. Crescendo is a sound that grows. Crescendo! Youth making a difference with music!
