Happy New Year!
"Make a joyful noise to the Lord. Serve the Lord with gladness come before His presence with singing." Psalm 100 says Serving and singing -- two wonderful ways to praise God!
Music is such a powerful thing! It can reach the hardest of hearts when nothing else can. Then, when we join music with the Gospel, the all-powerful Word of God, we have an explosive combination! Just as it was at the dedication of the temple, we can experience God's presence as we lift our voices in praise to Him through our Music Ministry.
There is a Latin motto that states "Bis orat, qui contat": "Those who sing pray twice."
I invite you to become a part of this important ministry at Peace. If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call (314.892.5610) or drop me an e-mail
