Children’s Music Ministry – Betsy Johnson

Psalm 95:1

“Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord.”

I want to be musical. But I’m not. Lucky for me, my children are! Good Shepherd Children’s Ministry has blessed our family with an amazing gift to allow our children to praise God through their voices and with their hands and feet. The rooms in our home are often filled with the sound of boys singing to Life 102.5, playing the piano, the Ukulele, and now the trumpet! Our music experiences began with Musikgarten classes at Good Shepherd when our oldest son was just 4 months old. This program truly helped give our boys the foundation for their love of not only music, but learning in general. It also provided us with a foundation for relationship building at Good Shepherd in a safe, fun, and nurturing family environment. We have been guided and nurtured through the years by many wonderful music mentors while involved in Joyful Noise and Upside, and I have watched our children’s faith, leadership, confidence, and relationships blossom in the process. Praise be to God!

“Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.” ~Martin Luther
