for First Presbyterian Church
TWENTY-THREE infants, babies, and toddlers along with many of their parents
and grandparents joined Minister of Music, Steven Jobman in exploring
Musikgarten on the Sundays of October. The sacred-based, highly-acclaimed
curriculum, “God, My Family, and Me!” is the basis for this exciting new ministry
which will take full shape beginning in January 2014. First Presbyterian Church,
Davenport continues to be a leader in music ministry by being one of the first
churches in the nation to add this outstanding sacred curriculum offering for
youngest children of God.
Musikgarten's philosophy is steeped in this understanding: movement and music
activities are perfect for child development; music immerses the child in
language; evokes movement; stimulates the brain; and fosters physical
coordination - all in a group setting that builds a God-centerered, musical
community - a truly holistic experience.
