At Second Presbyterian Church we welcome all children to participate in the music ministry of the church. We promise to find ways for every child to be involved. We invite parents to share with us the most helpful ways to teach your child, and share the love of God and music with your young musician. ALL God’s children are welcome to participate at whatever level they are comfortable…

Sunday School Music

Sunday School Music happens almost every Sunday morning when Church School is in session. This is an informal time of fun and song. Music relates to the lessons of the day or the church season. Sunday School Music is led by Mary Ibis as well as some volunteers at the following times:

  • 9:50 Bible Village 1st – 5th grades
  • 10:35 Preschool Music with Preschool and Kindergartners

Our music programming for children is offered year round!  During the summer, Mary Ibis conducts several music camps and leads Vacation Bible School Music.  Please see Summer Music Opportunities for more information.
