Worship and Arts (Drama, Dance, Music)
Early exposure to the gift of music, drama, and dance helps to create a life-long appreciation for using this gift to praise and glorify God. The goal for our Children and Student Worship and Arts Ministry is to provide children and teen with opportunities to participate in a variety of creative experiences, and to help them become comfortable in leading worship. We want them to understand that they can use music, drama, dance to praise God regardless of their age or ability. Rehearsals are every Wednesday from 6:00pm-8:30pm.
