Music is an important part of the life of Walnut Grove, providing leadership in worship and enrichment for the community. The music program includes opportunities for children, youth, and adults to sing and play instruments as well as participate in other worship arts to bring praise to the Lord. We sing and play many styles of music including traditional hymns as well as contemporary songs. The Worship Choir leads congregational singing during the weekly worship services and often presents special music programs at Christmas and Easter. The children's musical group, Hallelujah Kids, presents an annual music program at Christmas and sings periodically for special occasions.
