Music Ministry

Music has been called the “universal language”. It touches the hearts and souls of everyone- no matter where they live, what they look like, or what they do for a living.  In a nutshell: music brings people together.  Martin Luther once said, “I place music next to theology and give it the highest praise.”

Hephatha’s ‘Take Heart’ Praise Band

The Praise Band is a large group of dedicated and talented musicians who provide musical leadership as well as special music for contemporary and blended services (9:30 & 11:00). 

The ‘601 Band’

Twice each month we have the opportunity to worship on Sunday evening lead by the ‘601 Band.’ Comprised mostly of teenage musicians, this group guides us with the most current Contemporary Christian praise and worship songs. 

Hephatha’s Adult Choir

The choir provides music for special occasions/seasons of the church year. Our two main endeavors are our original Christmas stage productions and Easter services which have in the past included such favorites as  Handel’s “The Hallelujah Chorus.” If you like to sing, the choir’s for you!  You do not have to be a professional singer or even know how to read music. All you need is a voice and a heart to serve Jesus.

We also include the ‘Church Mouse Choir’ on those occasions for our younger singers.

If you would like to get involved or to find out more about these musical ensembles, call Mike Cooper at 637-0887 Ext. 154.
