Singing in a choir is an important activity for children to experience during their childhood. Through participation in a children’s choir program, children develop their singing voices, learn to work as a team, and develop a love for music. FBC Athens has a wonderful children’s choir program for children ages 3 through sixth grade. In the weekly choir rehearsals, the children sing, play instruments, move, and play musical games which help them experience the love of God through music. At First Baptist, we have three children’s choirs. The age breakdown for the children’s choirs is as follows:
Brownie Bears ages 3, 4 and pre-k children
Music Makers Kindergarten, first, and second grade children
Joyful Singers Third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grade children
Our Children’s Choirs will begin on Wednesday evening, August 16 at 5:45 with a Kick-Off Party event. This year our choir theme is “All Creation Sings.” This theme finds its inspiration in Psalm 150:6 which guides children to recognize God as the maker of all things. Through the various anthems introduced in the curriculum, the children learn to honor the world around them as God’s creation and express their praise and thanksgiving to the Lord of earth, sea, and sky. During the school year, the children’s choirs will sing in worship and perform for several other special church events.
If your child is interested in joining a children’s choir at First Baptist, please email Teresa Granger for more information. Looking forward to seeing your child on August 16.
