Worshiping God as the body of Christ is one of the greatest joys we have as believers and is a key part of our purpose in this life. Music is one of the many ways we can do this and we feel fortunate to have the honor to serve and to meet with this church family every Sunday morning and do just that. Ideally, worship is a way for us to thank God for His blessings and His faithfulness throughout the struggles we face in our lives. Our hope is that all of our efforts in the music ministry here at Wise Drive would serve to simply glorify His name and that it would be an outlet to pour out our hearts to Him, together as a family in Christ.
