Objective: Following the leadership and vision of the pastor, the purpose of the Music Ministry is to integrate into church services the gospel of Jesus Christ through music, song and dance, to lead and inspire the congregation in worship while providing an avenue through which individuals may share their gift and be an integral part of the worship.
Prospective: Each year the music ministry strives to grow in its ability to perform music of different genres and skill levels. We also focus on providing not only spiritual support to the church but financial support as well. Each year the Music Ministry sponsors a Calendar Tea as its major fund raising activity.The funds from this program are used to replace musical and audio equipment as well as support specific church projects.
