Music Ministries

icon-musicThe objective of the music ministry is to equip our congregation to better praise God, whether they are in a musical group or in the pew. Singing in the worship services is a offering to God in body, mind, and spirit. Listening to musical offerings is another way to worship and commune with God. Every note that is sung or played is a gift to our Creator who lovingly gave us the gift of music.

The Chancel Choir
