Music Ministry

Music connects people! Of course, you can sing or play an instrument by yourself, but it’s so much more meaningful to make music with others. Music in worship is especially a time when barriers of age, race, and style become less important, and praising God becomes the primary goal. Come, make that connection – to others, and to God – and involve yourself in a variety of music ministries.
