Music

Our mission is to:

  • Glorify God through the gift of music;
  • Provide worship experiences in which people sense the presence of God;
  • Foster spiritual growth and help kindle the desire to know God more intimately;
  • Provide outreach to the community.

In our ministry, we strive to:

  • Invite, include and involve children and adults of all ages in active worship participation;
  • Use a variety of liturgical settings, instruments and styles of music in worship;
  • Make a connection between scripture readings, the theme of the day, and words of the hymns we sing;
  • Provide the opportunity for children and adults to learn and grow through participation in Adult Choir, Handbell Choir, and Cross Walk Sunday and Wednesday music time;
  • Invite the community to enjoy our special music events.
