The Music Ministry at Joy is focused on providing music that enhances every worship service, and coordinates with weekly scripture readings and/or themes for the day. Joy has ensembles for kids, youth, and adults which include Joy KidsJam, Voices of Joy Choir, Polished Brass handbells, and Praise Band. All of the ensembles welcome everyone, no auditions necessary. We'd love to have you join too! If you are interested in learning more or joining any of the music groups, please contact Joy's Music Director.

 

Important Notice: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all of Joy’s music groups have suspended rehearsals until further notice.
