Music is a very important part of the Gambrell Street tradition. We believe that music is much more than entertainment – it is a very important part of worship. We praise the Lord and learn scriptural truths through the texts. The Psalmist says, “Sing a new song to the Lord! Let the whole earth sing to the Lord! Sing to the Lord; bless His name. Each day proclaim the good news that He saves.” (Psalm 96:1-2 NLT)
The whole Gambrell Street congregation becomes a choir praising God and telling of His mighty works. We have a music program that teaches music and worship skills to better facilitate our worship experiences for all ages. The leaders of our children's music groups are talented musicians who love children and love the Lord. They are committed to equip our children for a lifetime of worship through music.
Preschoolers love music and grow spiritually, musically, physically, mentally, and socially through their music time. They learn about God and His deep love for us. Musical activities teach the basics of music -- pitch, rhythm, dynamics, phrasing, tone quality, etc. They learn these concepts by singing and playing various instruments. Moving in rhythm helps to develop physical coordination skills. Finally, working as a team, they develop friendships and learn social skills. The children learn a lot, and have fun in the process.
Our Preschool Choir meets on Sunday afternoons at 5:00 and is open to preschoolers that are at least three years old.
