Music for Children


The Music Ministry works closely with the Children’s Ministry to integrate music into our students’ total church experience. Our purpose is to teach children about the love of Jesus through the gift of music. Children will experience this love, gain confidence, and have fun through singing hymns and anthems, creative movement, and playing games and instruments.

Children’s Choirs

Our Music Ministry sponsors choir programs for children in Pre-K through sixth grade that meets during the school year. Our Second-Ponce Singers participate in worship services every six to eight weeks, and all children’s choirs participate in special presentations at Christmas and in the spring.

Music Friends: Pre-K (age 4 by 9/1/16) and Kindergarten

Leaders: Edie Whitaker and Whitney Anderson

Music Friends will meet every Wednesday starting on August 17, 2016, from 5:30 – 6:20 p.m. in Room C318 in the Children’s Building.

Leader: Anne Thomas

The Second-Ponce Singers will meet every Wednesday starting August 17, 2016, from 5:30 – 6:20 p.m. in the Sanctuary Choir Room.
