Music & Worship

 Purpose

The purpose of the Music Ministry is to serve the Lord and His church by pointing all people to God. This is done through the vehicle of music. 

The main purpose of man is to glorify God. The Music Ministry exists to serve the Lord and His church by pointing all people to God. This is done through the vehicle of music.

Opportunities for participation include both instrumental and choral groups. Ages range from three years old to heaven.

Consider visiting a rehearsal with one of these groups and see if God would lead you to be a part of the try. It is a joy and a privilege to make music in praise of the Lord.

Everyone can participate in praising God by joining your voice with others in one of our four worship times each week. Center your mind’s attention and your heart’s affection on our Savior at these times of praise.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you
richly as you teach and admonish one
another with all wisdom, and as you
sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs
with gratitude in your hearts to God
Colossians 3:16
