CHILDREN
& YOUTH

The Children’s Music Program is an important opportunity in the lives
of our children.

The children’s music program seeks to provide age-appropriate music education in a Christian environment. The children are exposed to a variety of musical experiences, including musical guests and the musical instrument families, as well as choir training, which focuses on teaching the children how to sing and sight-read music. The abilities to sing and read music are precious gifts that our children can enjoy and use to contribute to worship for their entire lives. Experience with music at this age is very important and can foster a life-long love of music. In addition to music education, this is an important time to teach our children about the church: its structure, symbolism, worship, liturgy, and music. We highly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to give a priceless gift to your children for the sake of their future. Children are placed in age-specific groups.
