A Message from Ron:

There’s nothing that stirs my heart and mind like singing the great hymns of the church! The Music Department is now preparing timeless and new music to focus our hearts and minds on God’s greatest gift to us, Jesus Christ. Our music and prayers are our expressions of love and thankfulness in response to this timeless gift.
