Music & Arts

Connecting the Arts & Faith

Hear Christ's song and sing it loud! First we hear. Hearing requires listening. Through faith in Christ, prayer, Bible study, fellowship and worship we draw close and learn to hear His voice. Then we sing. Not just with our voices, but with our lives. With a spirit of boldness that amplifies the movement of the Holy Spirit. Through selfless service, witness, integrity and intercession, we seek to make Jesus Christ known to all people. Ultimately we want to become a community of artists dedicated to serving Christ. We invite you to join us in the journey! Take a look at our various vocal, instrumental, dance, sound, and visual arts opportunities for how to get involved in our music and arts ministries.
