Ministry of Music and Worship Arts
What is Music Ministry?
Music Ministry is God using willing vessels (His servants) to glorify His name and tell others about Him through the Arts (singing, playing instruments, drama, dance, visual arts, etc.).
What is Worship?
Worship is our heartfelt response to the love and hope which lies within us...the Love of Jesus Christ. Worship is also a "lifestyle" of loving and honoring God the Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit (our comforter and friend).
