"Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God."Psalm 147:1a
The place of music in worship and in the life of the church has been one of prominence since Old Testament times. Music is a powerful medium that can move mind and heart. Our faith is strengthened by the hymns and responses we sing, and the anthems to which we listen. Through all of these we hear the voice of God speaking to us. We encourage everyone to participate in the music ministry at Christ Church.
