Music

The music in our church is essential to the healing atmosphere of the service.

Its purpose is to uplift, comfort, inspire, and heal, in consonance with the subject of the weekly Bible lesson.  The musical selections for the solo range from fresh, contemporary songs to traditional favorites.

Our church has been blessed for many years by the vibrant musical team of Jenny Lynn Stewart, our  soloist, and Tom Williams, our organist:
