Voices of Praise


Every Sunday, prior to our morning worship you will hear the uplifting voices of our praise team (The Voices of Praise) setting the stage for the Holy Spirit to enter our hearts as we enter the sanctuary. This choir includes a small group of men and women with dynamic voices. They sing every Sunday and rehearse on Thursdays at 6pm for approximately one hour.


Voices of Zion

Rehearsal time for “The Voices of Zion” begins at 7pm on Thursday. This choir has approximately 20 members, both men and women.  We sing every first and third Sunday.  This choir is a very spiritual and dedicated group of adults. We love to rejoice, fellowship, pray, and sing praises to the LORD!!!!

The goal of the youth music ministry is to grow closer to the Lord in song and praise emphasizing songs that our youth and young adults can relate to and the congregation can appreciate and rejoice along with us as well. Come join us! We love to worship and praise the Lord!!!
