Christ Memorial’s Praise Kids is Expanding – Now Featuring both Song and Theatrical Elements!  

We are excited to offer the families of our church and community a new, expanded Praise Kids!

You are encouraged to check out our video link on this page.
Children in grades K-8 are welcome to join Dianne Mueller and Jane Robinson beginning on  Wednesday September 21, 2016, time to be determined, for a time of singing and/or participating in theater skill development.

Because this is a new endeavor, we plan to be flexible and adjust our activities as needed. Parent input will help us determine scheduling.

The new Praise Kids will participate in our worship for the first time this year in our Unified Worship on October 9.

Jane Robinson is relatively new to the Christ Memorial family. She taught 5th grade in a Lutheran school in Chicago for 8 years before moving to St. Louis in 1996, when her husband, Paul, was called to teach at Concordia Seminary. Prior to joining Christ Memorial, Jane directed children’s choirs for 20 years. She works as an editorial manager, and her hobbies include attending concerts, reading, and being outdoors. Jane and Paul have three children, Emily, William, and James, all of whom are in college.
Dianne Mueller has been a member of Christ Memorial for 25 years and part of the music department the entire time. Dianne has had a heart for Children in music and worship and has been teaching the Children’s Choirs here at Christ Memorial and Green Park Lutheran for 15 years.

Dianne is very excited to be working with Jane to expand this ministry and add new and exciting Theater elements that will help to bring the message of Christ to these kids in a new dynamic way, and have an opportunity to share this with the congregation as well.
Dianne and Jane are excited to provide a fun, faith-filled learning environment and would be delighted to hear that you are interested!
