Christy Perkey and friends read and sing together.

This past year, on Friday mornings, young children, parents, grandparents, and/or care givers have been coming to the Parent and Child Music Group! We have sung about leaves, pumpkins, fish in the sea, and God’s love for us. We have danced, read books, and had snack time together. We have been taking a break for the summer, but we will resume our regular weekly schedule on Friday, September 9, from 10:00-11:00, at the church in room 213.

God's Flock Children's Choir learns about Belmont UMC's organ

During Children’s Choir time, God’s Flock went on a field trip to visit Gayle Sullivan, Director of Music Ministries and the organ in the sanctuary. The children learned that the organ has a lot of fun buttons to push and it makes many different sounds.  Some are loud, some are soft, some are very low and scary, some are so high you can hardly hear them.  Photos by Janet Stewart
