Music & The Arts Ministries
Our response to the living Word of God works itself out in many ways, one of which is through music. Most often, the ministry of music is found in the corporate worship context. This corporate or gathered context is where people of God come together, typically on a Sunday morning, and take part in the dance of eternity--God to man, man to God and man to man.
Regarding music, the issue is not loud or quiet, electric guitars or organ and piano, choruses or hymns, fast or slow; but rather the content of the songs that we sing. When we come together, as God’s chosen people, to sing songs, hymns, and spiritual songs to one another, we strive to sing songs that instruct, teach, and re-remind us of God’s infinite and amazing grace.
We sing the truths of Scripture through the classic hymns, new songs that can be classified as contemporary, as well as some modern hymns. Our services feature music that is meant to guide worshipers in their faith journey. From traditional, classical to modern, contemporary and new. Come and be part of our music programs--dance with us the eternal dance of the ages. God to man-man to God-man to man.
