Music at Zion

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Music at Zion page. As you read the information below, you will find we are diverse in our music making, but our goals are the same. In our music making, we strive to do the following:

  1. PROCLAMATION – Proclaim the GOSPEL in song
  2. ACCLAMATION – Praise God in song
  3. EDIFICATION – Lift us God’s people in song

You are invited to read on for more information about Music at Zion. There are many ways that YOU can become involved in our musical proclamation and I encourage you to prayerfully consider how you will become involved!. What to know more? E-mail, call or stop by, you are always welcome here at Zion! Thank you for visiting the Music at Zion page. I hope to see you in worship (or maybe even at a rehearsal) soon.
