Children ages 3 through 5 meet on Wednesday evenings 6:00-7:15 during the school year. Music selections are based on a desire to lead our children to a growing faith in Jesus Christ. The age-appropriate music they learn will help them explore their gifts, talents, and abilities.
Central Baptist Church offers musical training for children in grades 1 through 5. These children meet on Wednesday evenings 5:00-7:15 during the school year and have the opportunity to participate in Bible drill, instrumental training, and choral instruction.
