“Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.”…Psalm 100
Music Ministry Vision
“Vessels of True Worship Reflecting the Redemptive Love of Jesus Christ”
Music Ministry Mission
By God’s grace, to exalt the Lord and cultivate open hearts to receive the seed of the Word of God and to grow in the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ:
• The Music Ministry’s focus for worship is that all the music elements so well intertwine with the liturgy and the sermon that people do not think about them as different parts but as one worship service.
• All the music is both text and Word driven through differing styles: Choral anthems, original guitar/vocal led compositions and worship music incorporating children, handbells and a variety of instruments.
“Please contact me if you have any interest in our choir, handbells or instrumental ensemble. We welcome newcomers and would love for you to “try us out.” I promise, you will enjoy it! I Hope to see you soon.”
Kelly Stultz, Director of Music and Arts
Goal: Provide musical opportunities in outreach and volunteer service for members of all ages of First Presbyterian Church
• Community outreach through Christmas concerts, patriotic concerts and other events
• Community outreach – Walker State Prison ministry Choir concert twice a year
• Belarus choir missions trip every two years
• Every worship service is an outreach!
Many of our members use their gifts and talents in music to aid in our “corporate” worship. Some of our members even write original arrangements for use by the congregation.
• Visits to shut-ins with music and encouragement
Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. Psalm 150
