Oh sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
tell of His salvation from day to day. (Psalm 96:1-2)
The Psalms call us to sing and praise the Lord for his goodness, love, power and grace. Our God is a God of creativity and beauty, and we come before the Lord in worship and thanks. Our music ministry provides a place for people of many musical talents to come together in fellowship to make their offering to God.
At Grace, we incorporate a variety of musical styles in our worship as we sing and play the music of past generations, world cultures, and the 21st century. Music goes beyond words to touch hearts and souls, involving the whole person as we sing, move and breathe.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Psalm 150:6)
