Music

From our October 12, 2014 service:

“People Need the Lord”, by the Emmanuel Adult Choir

 

Music helps summon the Holy Spirit in a very direct and personal way. It is among the most joyful offerings to God and allows our spirits to soar. Everyone is invited to be involved in music at Emmanuel: as a dedicated choir or band member, an occasional instrumentalist, or an enthusiastic congregational singer. Even the engaged listener has an important role!

If you are interested in sharing your musical talent, please contact our Musical Director, Andy Spang at andrew@lyricbrass.com.
