Children's Music Ministry

 

At Ankeny First, our desire is to encourage the musical potential God has gifted to each child by developing musical skills including expressive, tuneful singing, artul movement, instrument playing, and notational literacy for the purpose of participating in individual and corporate worship through music. Our children's ensembles rehearse weekly during the school year and present the music they learn periodically in various worship services. Weekly rehearsals begin September 12.
