We’re Goin’ Fishin’

40-Minute Musical
Item #3200a – Digital format

Item #3200b – Paper copy

We’re Goin’ Fishin’ is a children’s musical program for elementary-age kids (K-6).  This program includes 9 kid-friendly songs and a script with speaking parts.


 We’re Goin’ Fishin’ gives your children a chance to work on their fishing techniques. . . . but they 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 fishing data and interviews kids who are looking for:
. . . guidebooks,
You’ll find it, find it in the Bible.  Everything you’re looking for, it’s there and even more!
So when you read it, open your eyes.  Even though the book is old, the lesson still applies.

. . . a teacher,
Jesus is the very best teacher you will have.  His words are true.
If you really listen, there’ll be a change in you-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.

. . . the perfect bait.
We share the love of God, it is the perfect bait;
and we know all about it, we can hardly wait!

The kids pick up a lot of pointers about fishing in this musical, but Professor Freshwater learns a few things, too!

It was the best

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.

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!

It was terrific

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.  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.
