We will begin rehearsing for our Sunday School Christmas program on September 9, featuring the musical Straight Outta Bethlehem. Children in kindergarten through fifth grade in the 2018-19 school year are invited to join us for solos & speaking parts during the Sunday PM service.

Here at Berean, we offer many music & drama opportunities for children in kindergarten through fifth grade.

We have an annual Sunday School Christmas program in early December, that features a 45-minute Christmas musical. All children in kindergarten through fifth grade learn the songs during Sunday School and can sing in the choir. Drama rehearsals begin in mid-September on Sunday nights during the PM service for those interested in solos & speaking parts. The SS Christmas program also features songs & verses from the preschool classes, and a “parade” of the babies & toddlers.

In the 2018-19 school year, we will begin a spring musical for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Rehearsals will begin in January on Sunday nights during the PM service and continue through the spring until the presentation in April.

For the first time in 2018, we began New Praise 403 Music Camp @ Berean. This week-long AM summer camp included classes for music and Bible, games, snacks, and the preparation of a musical presented on Sunday night. Check back in early 2019 to see what’s coming for New Praise 403 next summer!

Older children are occasionally given the opportunity to join our adult choirs and present during our morning services.

Examples of previously presented musicals include: Hans Bronson’s Gold Medal Mission, The Agape League, Back to the Manger, The Christmas County Spelling Bee, We Three Spies, Back to the Cross, The Kingdom Connection, Wrapping All the Way, Star Quest, Jingle Bell Beach.

We invite any children regardless of previous musical experience who attend Berean to join us! Please contact Jessica Van Dyke if you have any questions!
