The Music Ministry seeks to utilize the power of worship through music. We bring an offering of praise, fight discouragement, and teach truth through a variety of music. The Music Ministry proposes to strengthen worshipers and to nurture the membership and all who visit in preparation for Christ’s soon return. Each service, our choirs and other music ensembles, prepare the hearts of the congregation to receive a word from the Lord. The music ministry is led by Bruce N. Seawood, Minister of Music.
Some of the choirs and music ensembles include:
Kings Children (childrens choir) is comprised of children from the ages 3 to 12. The Kings Children sing under the direction of Dale Blake with assistants Tawana Blake and Tanya Moody. Rehearsals are generally after church with the children being fed a snack as well.
