“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth… come into His presence with singing.”
— Psalm 100:1-2
FPCNC is delighted to be able to provide children with unique musical offerings from early-childhood through high school.
The children learn faith-based songs to sing in worship, are introduced to fundamentals of music and games, and play a variety of simple instruments. Key performances during the year are at the Christmas Pageant, Easter Sunday, and others. Get your child started early singing God’s praises!
