Music Ministry

"Praise the Lord!For its is good to sing praises to our God;

For it is pleasant and praise is beautiful."

Pslam 147:1

The Music and Worship Ministry exists to meet the spiritual needs of participants in various musical organizations, ministries, presentations, and worship services of the church. Through the medium of music, we are following the command found in Colossians 3:16, "Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you with all wisdom and teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God." Opportunities abound for those wishing to glorify the Lord. As you scroll through, please find your place of musical expression in the worship life of EBC.​​
