Weekly Chapel

First and foremost, Chapel is designed to teach children that they are loved by God and to encourage their love for God. We will explore the people, places and stories of the Bible in a child-friendly way including story time and music.

Chapel is taught jointly by the ministers of the church and our preschool teachers.
Chapel is held on Wednesdays in the sanctuary for our 2-5 year olds and is incorporated into Music for the 1 year olds and our T/Th students.

Music & Movement

In addition to daily classroom music, children come to weekly group music classes where they explore and create through:

  • listening & singing
  • moving alone & with various objects & equipment
  • learning to play a wide variety of pitched & percussion instruments

Music is vitally important for development of:

  • auditory, locomotor & non-locomotor skills
  • finger dexterity, eye-hand coordination, & muscle development
  • self-expression through group participation & socialization

Much of the Music and Movement program is based on a teaching process called Orff-Schulwerk. This is a child-centered process where the children are always actively involved in creating fun-filled curriculum-based music!
