Children's Music

Children of all ages enjoy a variety of opportunities to grow as young musicians and participate in worship leadership at First Presbyterian Church. Our graded choral and instrumental programs offer children, Kindergarten through 5th grade, the opportunity to be active participants in the life of the church. The program also reinforces the Christian education of our members through music of the liturgical seasons and the biblical texts that are part of the music. Participation in the following groups helps build confidence, leadership skills, and allows them to express themselves creatively through music. No experience is necessary and all children are welcome! Learn about other opportunities in our Children's Ministry program.

Please note that all adult volunteers who participate in our children's music ministries are trained on FPC's Abuse Prevention System.
