The Music Ministry is committed to facilitating worship, fellowship, encouragement, and outreach through a balanced program of music that includes expressions ancient and modern, eloquent and simple, familiar and new. We strive to prepare gatherings for worship that are Christ-exalting, transformational and display the unity of the Spirit. Corporate worship in our morning and evening services is enhanced through various musical ensembles that participate each Sunday. If you sing or play an instrument, we would love to have you join us.
