Faith Music Ministries


I will sing of your love and justice;
to you, Lord, I will sing praise.
              Psalm 101:1 (NIV)
 
Music is a gift from God, developed, 
shaped and shared in the service of God.
We welcome participants of all ages and levels of
experience to join our choirs, play the handbells, or
serve as an instrumentalist in an ensemble. 
 
There is joy to be shared through music!
