We're Goin' Fishin'
 gives all of your children a chance to work on their fishing techniques. . . . but your kids aren't fishing for fish, they're fishing for people. "The catch we like to catch is not the kind you eat, the catch we like to catch'll pro'bly have two feet!"

Professor Freshwater collects data from children in your group who are looking for guidebooks, equipment, and the perfect bait. "We share the love of God, it is the perfect bait; and we know all about it, we can hardly wait!"

"'We're Goin' Fishin' was a great success.  Thank you for creating a musical that carried a great message and was so affordable for a small church like ours."

Tanya S., First Presbyterian Church

"We had our kids perform 'We're Goin' Fishin'' and it was terrific.  They did a great job and the script was perfect for our church's Rally Day message.  Your ministry touches so many people and I hope you continue to build your library of contemporary musicals.  Our church has come to expect one musical per quarter!  Kids that are known to be more quiet and shy have grown out of their quietness and shyness over time - an amazing product of your musicals."
Robert M., Lutheran Church of the Apostles
"Your play is just what we were looking for!  Thanks!"

 Sarah K., Christian Fellowship

"Thank you for creating such a fun and Christ-centered musical.  The songs were so easy to learn and the kids enjoyed it very much.  It was great for our smaller group of kids!"
Lesley K., St. Paul's Lutheran School

"We performed your wonderful musical, 'We're Goin' Fishin'' at our church and it was a huge hit.  We had so many compliments and were told by several members that they thought it was the best performance the children have ever done.  It was such a blessing and we wanted to thank you for making the materials so affordable.  God bless."

Marsha D., Baptist Church

"We just love your music!  The variety of styles keeps the kids enthused, and I find myself humming the songs all the time.  Thank you for your ministry!"

Terri S., First Baptist Church
