It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music and praised the Lord. Fellowship of Praise offers a variety of music styles, including praise and worship, modern, contemporary, and some traditional favorites. We believe in outwardly expressing how God has blessed us inwardly by lifting our voice and our praises to God. 2 Chronicles 5:13 The mission of our music ministry is to play and sing skillfully before the One who gifted us. We sing for God, about God and to God with the best of our ability so that when the world views at us they see him.
