The Ministry of Music exists to convey the love of Christ to others through music and the arts. It is an integral part of the total ministry and mission of the church which strives to lead the congregation to worship God in “Spirit and in truth.”
All parishioners – both young and old, professional musicians and beginners – are encouraged to take part in this ministry. For more information on any of the ensembles listed, please contact the Director of Worship and the Arts.
Children and Youth
Fine Arts Camp
Fine Arts Camp (FAC) is designed for children that are rising 2nd thru 6th graders regardless of church affiliation. This year, Fine Arts Camp enjoyed creating and presenting the story of “Noah and the Great Flood” from “The Sailor’s Bible” by Tom S. Long and Allen Pote.
Forty children had a blast creating rainsticks and animal masks, learning songs, choreography and…the story of Noah. We learned that, “When we walk with God, we find rest in the ark of God’s promise.”
Thank you to all of those who helped make 2015 FAC such a tremendous success! Mark your calendars for the week of July 18-22, 2016 and be sure to join us next year! For additional info for the 2016 FAC, email Dana Davis or call at 828-264-6090 Ext 246.

There will be a dedicated space for parents to fellowship if they wish to remain while the children are in rehearsals.
