About the Program - For Performers

The music program that will be presented February 23 is the second part of chapter 2 in the Power and Glory of God Music Series. Last year was presented "Rejoice in Christ!" which began the second part of the series. The new chapter this year focuses on what Christ inspires in us; the result of which is expressed from our souls in joyful music. Christ Our Song! With this years concert we show Christ as our source of Joy, Peace, and Hope for the world.
