Children's Music

Glen Mar’s music ministry offers a vibrant children’s music program that runs from September through mid-May, with enrollment open year-round. Rehearsals occur weekly, and steady participation is key to their growth and learning.

Volunteer directors teach children about worship and music by utilizing motions, rhythm instruments, chimes, boom whackers, mini bells and singing. Children are encouraged to share joys and concerns with each other, and they pray together each week. The children’s choirs lead in worship every 5-6 weeks at the Sunday 9:30 a.m. service and occasionally at the Sat. 5:00 p.m. and Sun. 11:00 a.m. services. The children’s choirs often participate in outreach events in the church and local community.

Youth interested in the Youth Orchestra or playing another instrument in worship should have prior musical instruction.
