Each fall, we offer an incredible performing arts program for preschoolers through middle school. Through singing, dancing, and the arts, we prepare for a holiday performance in December.

We believe that each child is an artistic work of God, uniquely gifted with talents and passions. Our teachers seek to help students develop skills and work collaboratively to enrich each child’s artistic development. Our goal is that every child feels a part of the whole production and that each child learns that every role within a production is important. In addition, we want our students to take the communication skills, task commitment, discipline, and self confidence gained from our program and apply it to their daily life at home, at school, and within their community.

Registration for children age 4 (as of October 2) through grade 8 begins August 18 for our Christmas musical. This Performing Arts program incorporates training in worship, music with choreography, dance and drama.

Note this change: Rehearsals for all children take place Tuesday evenings, starting August 28 at 5:30 pm. Children grades 2 thru 8 are eligible to audition for drama, dance and solo roles with auditions on September 4 & 6 and call backs on September 7.

Musical performed December 1 & 2. Register online beginning August 18, on the patio during weekend services, or in the Children’s office during the week. Registration ends September 25.
