… A creative arts ministry born out of the Music and Worship ministry for preteens that is dedicated to helping kids discover and develop their God-given talents in music, media, visual and performing arts, and leadership in a missions setting. KATANGELLO is a Greek word that means “To teach, to show, or to proclaim…” We learn so we can teach others and proclaim the Good News of the Gospel to all ages.
… Drama, Blacklights, Handbells, Hand Chimes, Stomp, Creative Worship, Skittles Clowning and Gospel Illusions, Puppetry, Washboard Band, Praise Band Prep, Praise Team, Games and Sports, Plugged In Media, and Arts in Missions (some groups are seasonal).
