Hilltop Children's Music Program Kick-Off Session: September 9-30

We welcome the return of the Hilltop Children's Music Program this fall!

Join us for a fun, four-week session where children will get to know new friends as they sing, drum, play, and create together.

Thursdays: September 9, 16, 23, 30

5:30-6:45pm

Hilltop House Lawn (just west of the church building)

Ages 5-12

Cost per participant: $20

Registration Now Open!


This special kick-off session will introduce the music and themes of "CALLED" - the children's musical we will produce and perform as part of Creative Arts Week in Summer 2022. What does it mean to be called by God? "CALLED" affirms that God has placed something beautiful in everyone and is calling us to share it with the world. Through composer Mark Burrows' honest, humorous storytelling and memorable musical numbers, kids will discover their unique gifts as they learn that "doing what's right isn't always easy... but it's always, always right."

We ALL will feel empowered to live lives worthy of the calling we have received. 

Light snack provided.

Youth Mentors (ages 13-18) are invited to participate. Use the registration link above to volunteer.

About Hilltop Children's Music Program

The Hilltop Children’s Music Program (HCMP) offers a unique opportunity for children in grades K-5th 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.

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 may 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!
