See below for a special Advent Music & Arts experience for children and families!
Information about our plans for Winter 2021 will be available in mid-December.
The Hilltop Children’s Music Program (HCMP) offers a unique opportunity for children in grades PreK-3rd grade to grow in their Christian faith through musical expression. This free ministry introduces children to the joy of music and cultivates the lifelong gift of song in each child. We use our hearts, our hands, and our voices in activities that benefit the musical development of children: singing, percussion, movement, Orff, handchimes, and much more. We lay important groundwork for musicianship - ear training, music literacy and readiness, musical expression, and creativity.
The HCMP also serves to inspire the spiritual development of children. We explore foundational Bible stories and move through the seasons of the church year by creating percussion grooves, crafting songtales, and preparing our choral repertoire. Our repertoire is diverse - incorporating global music and folk music in addition to newly-composed sacred anthems for children's voices.
Outside of a pandemic year, the children in HCMP are provided experiences of worship leadership at Hilltop and around the community. In addition to participating in worship services at Hilltop, the children perform at Hilltop's annual concert events: the Fall Festival of Faith, the Hilltop Christmas Concert, and the Music & Arts Fundraising Concert. These events are a wonderful opportunity to share our gift of music with the community.
Together, we imagine and discover how we can shine God's light and love to the world!
Celebrate the season of Advent through this special at-home experience. Music, craft, and nature activities have been thoughtfully curated to guide your family through the season of hope and anticipation. Prepare your hearts and homes for the Christ child and join us!
Participants will receive one email each Sunday in Advent with the weekly activity guide, the singalong videos, and an invitation to share your creations with our community. Learn more.
