Children’s Music Education


Praisemakers (4s and 5s)

Praisemakers is a music class for Pre-K during the 11 AM Sunday worship service children taught weekly by dedicated Christian musicians. Children are dismissed from worship during the second hymn.

Tenth Children’s Music

Tenth Children’s Music builds on the music instruction children receive in Praisemakers, meeting each Sunday evening for general music instruction, choir rehearsal, and hymnody study with Christian musicians and educators. Students sing and study new hymns, learning not just the music, but also the historical context and spiritual significance of the words.

  • Who:  For children in grades 1–6.
  • Where: All activities will be in the main building basement and catacombs.
  • When: Sunday nights, except during the summer. Drop off is at 6:10 PM. Pick up is at the end of the evening service, not later than 7:45 PM.
