We will have a Combined Worship Service on Sunday, June 16 at 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary.

Music Ministry

It is our prayer and desire to live out this scripture in the worship life of our church.

Ephesians 5:19-20 encourages believers to, “Speak(ing) to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

We recognize that worship is not music alone, but musical offerings and congregational songs are important to our worship of the Lord.  Therefore, in our services we sing songs that fit the genres of Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.  We teach our children to sing using their voices to give God praise.  We encourage our youth to find their voices and to sing to the Lord through our Chapel Choir for youth.  Our adults provide quality leadership in worship through our Sanctuary Choir.  We also help our senior adults to realize that their time for make music is not over through our Mellow Brook Singers senior choir.  Our stringed instrumentalists find ways to praise the Lord through using their talents in our band for our second service, as well as woodwind and brass instrumentalists in our first service.

Whatever we do musically, we strive to do it with excellence, offered to God as an act of worship.  What a privilege to serve the Lord in this way using our God-given talents for Him!  Take a moment to browse the page and find your place in the music ministry of our church.  We have space for you!
