Why We Sing

Did you know the largest singing group in our church is the congregation? Our Music & Media ministry exists to engage the congregation in worship as we ourselves worship at the foot of the cross each Sunday. In the pew or on the platform, our mission is to have sincere, authentic and convictional worship experiences. Join us in the ministry of MUSIC!


We will have a thriving ministry, that reflects and communicates Christ to the community and church, in which the members work together to worship the Lord with excellent and creative musical expressions.


To glorify God as we gather, grow, give and go by praying, planning, preparing and providing for opportunities for convictional worship experiences.



The Bell Choir, Celebration Choir and Orchestra are non-auditioned. We’ll find a place for you! The bands and the vocal teams are by an interview audition. We provide worship leadership for three services each Sunday at 8:30 am, 11:00 am and 4:00 pm, in addition to special events and programs. For more information on how you can be involved in this special ministry, contact any of our Music & Media Staff.
