Music Ministry

Beautiful music lifts the heart and mind towards God during the liturgy. Whether you are an adult, student, singer, or musician, consider lending your talents to enhance our music ministry. Enhance congregational worship and participation through song leadership. A variety of opportunities are available to those with the desire to share their musical gifts.
