On Wednesday nights our Pre-K-5th graders participate in BLAST! (Building Lives Around Sound Truth) from 6:15-7:30 pm. BLAST! combines choir and catechism and seeks to give children a firm Biblical foundation so that they will grow to love the Lord with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength (Matthew 22:37).
Our choir program provides your child with the unique opportunity of training in a skill that they will use as Christians throughout eternity in heaven: worship through music (Rev. 5:13-14). Elementary music directors use well-crafted anthems, theory games, movement activities, and performance experience—all in a positive environment—to lead children toward greater musicianship and musical worship leadership in order to praise God.
Children’s catechism guides your child through the New City Catechism, which seeks to teach children and give them a coherent and extensive system of thought that equips them to confidently interpret the world and their experiences in the world through a biblical framework (Proverbs 22:6). Coupling interactive memory games and other activities with “the practice of question & answer recitation brings instructors and students into a naturally interactive, dialogical process of learning” (Tim Keller).
The combination of choir and catechism is an enriching experience. It is exciting to watch our covenant children grow to love our Lord and Savior through learning, games, singing, and activities.
Please fill out both sections of the form to register your child/children for BLAST! (Building Lives Around Sound Truth).
By registering my child, I understand IPC may use pictures that include my child on the church website and other in-house communications; however, no personal information identifying the children will appear with those pictures.
