The Sonshine Bunch is a children's choir for students First - Fifth grade. This ministry is actually tied into our Journey Program as one of the exciting stations visited during each Wednesday night's event. During Journey, the children are divided into two classes which are Kindergarten - First Grade, and Second Grade - Fifth Grade. When each class visits the choir room, our music director Scott Gibbs along with Connie Weathers and other volunteers work with the children on singing (and acting when rehearsing for our Christmas and Easter musicals).
These two groups of childrens classes make up our Sonshine Bunch. The children spend the time in the music center learning both classic and contemporary worship songs that are performed on different occassions during our Worship Service. When time permits after rehearsing music, it is not uncommon for us to perform short skits within the class (a favorite of the kids)!
We set aside special times throughout the year that our Sonshine Bunch blesses us through special singings and musicals such as…
Scott Gibbs and other volunteers begin working with the children a number of months or weeks before the performance, depending on the amount of practice needed. We will be sure and let you know when we begin working on performances and assigning parts, this way you can help your child with his or her parts. This is also a great way to spend that special time with your child. In addition, we usually send home music cd's of any musicals we are performing, letting your child get better acquainted with the music. We have actually had a number of parents comment on how much they enjoyed the cd's themselves.
