With a passion for excellence, and yet a genuine heart and sensitivity for personal ministry, the Music Ministry strives to meet the needs of our worshiping family while providing musical experiences and education for four year olds-senior adults.
The musical diversity and organizational size of the Music Ministry - great choral classics to Southern gospel by a 80-voice Chancel Choir, favorite hymn arrangements and scripture settings by selected vocalists, innovative handbell works presented by four handbell choirs, commissioned literature for full 32-piece symphony orchestra complete with strings and harp, and multiple instrumental soloists - all work together to augment and enhance weekly worship experiences and seasonal programming.
