We nurture friendships through a variety of musical ensembles that carry the hope of the Gospel to the church and to the world.

It Matters

Through music, we are able to be more like our Creator by creating something beautiful. We become unified as a body when we play in unity. Meeting together weekly, this talented ensemble both supports the congregation's voice and crafts special moments of instrumental praise to God. Through the foundational and thoughtful hymns of our faith, the timeless message of Christ is proclaimed with excellence and reverence each time we gather for worship.
