The Music Ministries of Avenue Church are committed to musical excellence in a Christ-centered environment in which music is used to instruct us all in the ways of Christ.
Psalm 150 proclaims, “Let every living, breathing creature Praise God! Hallelujah!” It also states, “Praise with a blast on the trumpet, praise by strumming soft strings; praise God with castanets and dance, praise him with banjo and flute; praise God with cymbals and a big bass drum, praise God with fiddles and mandolin.”
Psalm 150 truly does portray the picture of a life centered in Christ; for ALL are to Praise God. Let us seek this day that portrait as we utilize our musical gifts for the Glory of God.
