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, artful movement, instrument playing for the purpose of participating in individual and corporate worship. Our children's ensembles rehearse weekly during the school year and present the music they learn periodically in various worship services. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • KidZone:

    Coming September 1., 2021...KidZone! We are excited to tell you about this all-new ministry just for KIDS! At KidZone, students ages 4 through 5th grade will have a blast learning more about God's love for them while exploring scripture, engaging in worship, responding through outreach projects, and interacting with other kids and adults! The games and crafts will help reinforce the truths we are learning from the Bible. There will be lots of singing and dancing, and children will be given opportunities to share their music in worship services throughout the year. If you have enjoyed programs like Bible Adventures, KULE Kids, Kids of the Kingdom, and Little Cherubs, KidZone is definitely for YOU! Emily Kupris, Amity Wagner, and their team of energetic volunteers are eager to welcome you! Join them Uptown (Room 214) on Wednesday nights 6:00-7:00pm. This program is FREE, and registration is not required. We can't wait to see you at KidZone!

  • Rattle and Rhyme:

    "Rattle & Rhyme" is a program designed to encourage parents and children ages newborn-2 to sing, dance and play instruments together. The instructor will introduce a lot of fun musical activities in class which can also be used at home to nurture a strong bond between you and your little one. It's also a great opportunity to get to know other parents in the community! Watch for upcoming dates.
