Children & Family Music

Dear Parents,

I treasure the opportunity to grow with the children as part of the Music Ministry here at Roswell Presbyterian Church. I’m thrilled about the upcoming opportunities for children of all ages to share their faith and God’s love through song! I invite you to register your children for one or more of our five Children’s Choirs or participate in our Family Music program. Programs are offered for children newborn-5th grade. If you haven’t joined a choir before, now is your chance! We’d love to have you.

My goal for the Children’s Music program at RPC is for children to develop a love for music through participation in church and worship, as well as grow an appreciation for church music and worship that will last a lifetime. Let’s commit to serve God and others through song! I look forward to seeing you and your children in choir.
