Our Music

The Salvation Army believes in music to help praise and worship the lord. We do that through adult and youth musical groups that participate on Sunday services and other musical events. Between the adult Brass Band, Choir, and modern Praise and Worship team, along with the youth and children’s brass bands, choirs, & timbrels …they all exist to use their vocal, instrumental and technical abilities to:

  • Exalt and magnify the Lord.
  • Encourage God’s people to worship the Lord.
  • Prepare hearts to respond to God’s word.
  • Provide both traditional & contemporary tones to church worship.

Every member of each team is committed to using his/her skills with the primary purpose of giving God the glory, honor and praise that He deserves.

“Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord” Ephesians 5:18-19

“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord” Psalm 100:1


“Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name”   Psalm 100:4
