Music for Children

Children's Choirs (K3-5th Grade) meet on Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:00pm. Children are divided into three classes - K3-K4, K5-2nd Grade, 3rd-5th Grade - where songs and activities help them discover music as a joyful, natural means of expression and they begin to grow in God's grace as they sing, play, and move. Children also sing in various worship services throughout the year, as well as special evening activities and programs. For more information about music for children, please contact Don Kirkindoll, Director of Traditional Music, or Anne Shelton, Director of Children's Ministries.
