MUSIC MINISTRIES AT EFUMC
We welcome all who would like to be part of our music ministry. We believe that music is worship and plays a vital role in our worship. If you enjoy singing or playing an instrument we would invite you to become part of our worship ministry family.
It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praising the Lord, saying, for he is good; for His mercy endureth forever; that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; so that the priest could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.” -2 Chronicles 5:13-14
