The children of the church are cherished for their exuberance and embraced as a gift. They are involved in worship as well as all aspects of the church. In Sunday School, they learn about scripture through lessons, music, drama, computers, and art. The choir and missions programs are enriching and fun. Annual retreats and events, such as summer camp and Vacation Bible School, are planned for the children and are a focus of the entire church.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT PROGRAMS:
CHILDREN'S CHOIRS (6:15 PM)
All of our choirs have access to a wide variety of rhythm instruments, resonator bells, Boomwhackers, and Orff instruments. Grades 1-6 also use choir chimes and handbells. We sing with recordings and with piano accompaniment. Musical concepts and singing skills are taught in both small group and large group settings. Preschool choir emphasizes steady beat, simple rhythm patterns, matching pitch, and basic concepts such as high and low, loud and soft, fast and slow. Treble Makers build on these skills in grades 1-6, adding more difficult rhythms, singing in parts, music reading, and performance skills. They also have access to Maestro, a computer-based music education program. Age-appropriate spiritual concepts are woven into our teaching as we discuss the words we are singing.
Our choirs include not only the children of our Vineville Baptist families, but also children whose families do not have a church home or whose church is not able to provide a graded choir program. Visitors are always welcome!
