What's Worship Week?
Worship Week is a huge celebration and reflection of the heartbeat behind the Worship Arts Ministry, and it is absolutely my favorite week of the year!
The kids have fun learning worship skills, how to live worshipful lives and how lead worship on and off stage. With opportunities to explore instruments, voice, drama and art, this week is an action-packed sample platter of the best Worship Arts opportunities for kids at Shandon! Mark your calendar for July 13–July 17 and register now to get the early bird discount (through May 15). You don’t want your students to miss this!
Large Group Rehearsals
These rehearsals point to our Friday evening performance and worship service. Rising sixth–eighth graders learn to play and sing in a worship band while developing individual and ensemble skills. They collaborate to put together a worship set that they can share! Rising first-fifth grade students focus on worshiping with their voice and their body as we learn songs and choreography that will stick with us for years to come!
Have you ever considered taking guitar lessons? What about voice or piano? Exploratory classes give our students the opportunity to try their hand at these instruments in a group of beginners. We provide all of the materials necessary, and students walk away at the end of the week with the ability to play a full song. Exploratory classes in drama, set design (art), sign language, percussion and dance are also offered.
Can’t decide where to start?
Try “Music Mashup” and build basic musical skills while exploring many instruments! Elementary students select two exploratory classes for the week, and they attend both classes each day; Middle School students select one.
What will my student learn about worship?
As we discuss how to “learn it, live it and lead it,” we'll learn that
1. worshipers love God with everything they have, and
2. that worshipers make choices that honor God with their talents and their lives.
Elementary students will see these big ideas illustrated in each rehearsal and exploratory class, and our Middle School House Band will explore how to share these ideas in their worship preparation.
REGISTRATION IS OPEN
Worship Week is for rising 1st – 8th graders. Register now for your preference of exploratory classes. Receive a discounted price for registering by May 15.
I look forward to learning it, living it and leading it with your students in July!
