Music

“The final aim and reason of all music is nothing other than the glorification of God and the refreshment of the spirit.” ― Johann Sebastian Bach

We have many opportunities to glorify God through music. The Chancel Choir presents music for most worship services during the school year. The Praise Team sings more contemporary musical arrangements with keyboard, guitar and drum accompaniment.  Grateful Praise Singers visit area churches once a month to provide music for those churches that do not have a choir of their own.

There are additional opportunities for individuals and small groups to provide special music of all kinds throughout the year, such as instrumental leadership, vocal solos or small groups, and hymn leadership.
