Music/Arts

INSPIRITUS DANCE MINISTRY. We minister in movement and reflect on the biblical context of the music that we minister and on how God wants us to live our lives moving forward. The purpose of ministering in movement in this way is to keep in step with the Holy Spirit and to inspire others to seek a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, mind, body and spirit.

The Voices In Praise Youth Choir (VIP) includes children in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Our goal in youth music ministry is to let our young people express their love of God through song as they minister to the congregation. Rehearsals are usually held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month following worship. VIP sings on various Sundays during the 11:00 worship service and for special worship services such as Christmas and Easter.
