Praise Him with the timbrel and
dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.
O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever.
1 Chronicles 16:34
The Praise and Worship Ministry leads the congregation in a corporate worship experience that glorifies God and edifies believers; work toward establishing an atmosphere conducive to the delivery of God’s Word; ministers to the heart of God and makes a general declaration of the glory of God through song.
In addition, the ministry aids and assists in the presentation of a worship experience that ministers to the total spiritual needs of congregants; aids and assists in the facilitation of continuity of flow in all worship services; contributes to the completion of the overall ministry vision through the utilization of spiritual gifts, and actively demonstrates excellence through continued efforts to perfect and appropriately steward the ministry of praise
and worship to God.
We believe that music is an integral part of the worship service. It is not entertainment, nor a diversion, but a ministry through which the Gospel message is enhanced and expressed.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
This Ministry involves a variety of ministry expressions including dance, drama, mime, and other fine arts interpretative presentations to the Glory of God. Presentations include worship services, special events, along with the annual Easter and Christmas celebrations.
