Music Ministry

Each Sunday we come together as a congregation to celebrate the Love of Christ in worship with songs of praise!

We join our voices together, using music as a way to share the song in our hearts—the song of joy to Christ, our Savior, an offering to our Lord of our love for Him. We hear voices around us, the young and the old, strongly and boldly singing praise to God.  We also hear instruments of all types lifted in  response to our Lord’s grace and mercy. What a wonderful celebration of praise when all of these combine together in worship!

Have you been blessed with a singing voice or the ability to play an instrument? Do you yearn for the opportunity to express your heart’s song through music to our Lord?  Whether you are a young child, youth or adult, there are groups that you can join with fellow members, who also feel the calling of Christ to serve Him through music. There are many ways to serve, so prayerfully consider adding your talents to our music ministry this year. You’ll be so blessed! All groups meet once a week.
