The Sunday School music program is directed by Kathy Lundgren. The goals are to instill a love of hymns and build community through group singing and music activities. The students will also have the opportunity to learn the songs of our liturgy and music appropriate to the lessons for each Sunday. Our Pre-School class will meet once a month for about 10-15 minutes. Our K-4 classes will meet as a group for the entire Sunday School hour the first Sunday of October, January, March, and May. The group will have the opportunity to sing at the 11 a.m. service on those days.
