It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High, to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, … Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. Psalm 92:1, 2a; 95:2
As we grow in grace together at LMPC, serving in the music ministry is a wonderful way to form relationships and become connected to the life and work of the church. We are blessed to have multiple services in both our sanctuary and fellowship hall each Sunday morning, and as a result have many opportunities for musicians of all ages to serve. Stylistic differences exist across our services, however, we are one church with one worship voice. If you have any questions, please contact the person listed in your area of interest and we will help you find a place as part of the music ministry at LMPC.
