A Mission Statement for Church & Choir

Creating Environments where Non-Religious and Nominally Religious People become Deeply Devoted Followers of Jesus Christ (Music and the Arts) by Engaging People to Worship God.

Music imprints scripture and truth on our hearts, especially for children and youth.  These words learned and sung will remain with them for a lifetime.

Adorns worship like the perfume the woman “wasted” on Jesus’ feet.

Singing (or playing) in a choir creates community and interdependence of spirit and duty – I am one part of the whole body … necessary to use my gifts for the good of the whole.

Worship (and rehearsing for worship) here on Earth is our preparation for singing and worshipping for eternity at God’s throne.

Our Vision – “What’s our WIN”:

•  A full loft of people (youth, children, or adults) singing their hearts out, beautifully & powerfully, in praise to God

•  A congregation that sings strongly and with joy

•  Meaningful, transformative worship with moments of awe

•  Music that inspires, moves, and grips people … making them feel they’ve just touched something transcendent

•  Choirs of people that serve as “modified small groups”: taking care/praying with one another; learning and growing in faith together

•  People singing their faith strongly and living it strongly

•  Choirs that utilize (leverage) their gifts of sound and spirit to do good in community (hands-on mission, raising funds for missions, taking our spirit (The Spirit) to areas that may have forgotten or not known it …
