The principal role of our music ministry is to enhance the corporate worship experience and thereby move people into a closer relationship with God; to witness the theology of the church while developing music excellence; and to effectively reach the believers and unbelievers. As a magnet that draws metal objects, an effective church ministry draws new church members to Christ. Our foundation is prayer along with a commitment to serve each other's spiritual needs. We welcome you to our Music Ministry with open arms, humble hearts, and love.

I will pray with the Spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also; I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the understanding also 1 Corinthians 14:15
