Music Ministry

We celebrate our faith through MUSIC!  Outstanding music!  The sanctuary choir presents seasonal cantatas and other special music with instrumental accompaniment.  All our musical groups offer a “Patio Concert” in early summer.  “Spirit Singers,” a small group within the women’s ministry, sings weekly at local retirement and health care communities.  Our music ministry includes choirs for all ages beginning with 4 year olds, and includes handbell choirs, small ensembles and instrumental music as well.  You are welcome to join in!
