Kindergarten – 5th Grade
Rehearsals during The WAY Mid-Week Program
Singers in The WAY will learn sacred songs in a variety of styles and from around the world, how to sing from the Presbyterian hymnal, how to learn about and how to play various rhythm instruments, and will experience music through movement. Singers will learn to read and identify rhythms and musical notations through various, interactive exercises and practices. The Children of The Way learn and prepare songs to sing during Sunday worship (at both The Gathering and sanctuary services), for the annual Live Nativity, for the 5 p.m. Christmas Eve Service, and for the annual Children’s Sunday in March.
Children in The WAY can also register to be in the Ringerific Handbell Choir. More details HERE.
Children and Youth are encouraged to offer their musical talent to the glory of God during worship.
