"Everything on earth will worship you; they will sing your praises,shouting your name in glorious songs" Psalm 66:4
"We want to be, and live our lives, as Jesus did." 1 John 2:6, paraphrased
The Capitol Hill SDA Church Music and Arts Ministry ministers to kindle a worship environment that: ACKNOWLEDGES Jesus as Lord and King; REFLECTS Christ through our witness and testimony; INSPIRES others to seek to know Him and to submit to His will for their lives; and, NURTURES the congregation in full, conscious and active relationship with Him.Our preparation for and participation in worship is guided by CHC’s Pastoral Guidelines for Music and Creative Arts Ministry provided to all current and prospective members. These tenets are designed to provide consistency in our worship celebrations where Christ is exalted, God is honored, the anointing is present, and the people are participating and blessed.If you have a passion for music and want to grow your gifting to serve God in a team setting, we invite our congregants and community of all ages and levels to get involved.
