Learn, Sing, and Grow!
Designed as a fully integrated approach to teaching scripture and bible stories within the context of a musical experience, all children, birth through sixth grade, are offered musical and faith-building opportunities in these combined musical education and faith-formation programs. Through singing, and by participating in musical games with rhythm patterns and melodic instruments, our young singers are taught in a musical atmosphere where they are recognized as a loved child of God and an important part of our church family.
Sunday School & Choir
We are thrilled to continue to offer a music-based Sunday School curriculum at both campuses on Sunday mornings at 9 and 10am for children ages 3 through 6th graders. The participatory educational model combines the best of children’s choir with a quality Bible curriculum designed just for kids. All children enrolled in Sunday School classes will have the opportunity to perform as a choir and provide special music for our Sunday morning worship services periodically throughout the year. The Sunday School experience consists of singing, playing percussion instruments, art, creative drama and movement, as well as small group discussions and games centered around the weekly Bible lesson. All of these activities are designed to help children discover new church friendships, create community, and develop their faith!
Sunday School Classes:
- Cherub: Preschool age
- Alleluia: Kindergarten and 1st grade
- Hosanna: 2nd and 3rd grades
- Chapel: 4th, 5th and 6th grades

Each week in Musikgarten, children birth to three years of age, along with the adults who love them, gather to create and experience the magic of music in a safe and loving community. Join us as we sing, dance, wiggle, laugh, play instruments, and experience the joy that only music can provide! Musikgarten brings together the values of music, nature, and early childhood education. The philosophy behind Musikgarten is to provide babies and toddlers with some of the most enjoyable parts of childhood: music and movement. Early music education is a powerful tool that can help children exercise their speech, social skills, self-esteem, focus, motor skills, creativity and many other important stages of early childhood development. The best part of Musikgarten is that it makes all of these things fun!
Classes are 30 minutes in length and offered on Tuesday morning, Tuesday evening, Thursday morning or Friday morning to fit almost every schedule.
