Music Ministry

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. 2 Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. 5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever.” (Psalm 100:1-2,4-5a NIV )
