Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.
Psalm 150:1-5

Music Ministry

“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.”
God’s people are a people who like to celebrate.  Because of His great love for us in Jesus Christ, all of His children have the opportunity to come together and rejoice and express our praise and thanks.
