Music and Worship Arts
Our purpose and joy in this life is found in the praising of our Lord and Savior through many different creative avenues of worship. We encourage people from all walks of life and backgrounds to come together as the Body of Christ to present their gifts of music, drama, dance, technical skills, and other forms of art in a context of worship.
As God freely gave individual gifts to us, the Music and Worship Arts Ministry strives to encourage, develop, and use those talents in the praise and adoration of God. Through our vocal and instrumental musical offerings, dramatic interpretations, visual arts, and the efforts of a trained technical ministry, the worship experience of every individual is purposefully and joyfully enhanced.
The choir, orchestra, bands, and technical ministries also provide a "smaller church family" setting where several hundred persons have found close friendships, prayer support, and encouragement as they have become involved. There may be a place for you!
