Music Ministry

We love to praise God with music and singing, expressing this in many ways: Instrumental Ensembles, Choir, Handbells, and Special Music. Worship on Sundays includes the singing of hymns and praise songs with our worship teams.We offer a beautiful Lessons and Carols Christmas program every December for the church and community. We also serve our local assisted living facilities with musical opportunities. For more information regarding any of the groups, please cont
