Over the past 30+ years they have regularly provided musical ministry in churches involving over 40 Sundays each year. Their mission is to "Make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord" and their music provides an uplifting experience for both the musicians and the congregation.

The Light of  a New Day

Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?”
– Isaiah 43:18-19

    The Israelites find themselves exiled in Babylon, a foreign country not their own, and they think back to the Exodus and their deliverance by God. This is what they hold onto. This is their source of hope. But prophet Isaiah has other words for them. Yes, it is important to remember the past and those things of significance, but we can’t live in the past either. Isaiah quotes the LORD as saying, “Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?”

    God is not going to rework the past to make our present acceptable for a bright future. God is about doing new things, pointing forward to the future to reveal the handiwork that he has in store for us. For it is Jesus, our Messiah, who through the resurrection comes to break our chains and lead us forth into the light of a new day –
a day filled with hope, and with promise, and with a never-failing love. Jesus opens our eyes to the fact that God didn’t just work in the past during the good ol’ days that we remember fondly. Rather, God is present in the here and now, blessing us with his presence and promising to remain faithful to his people forever.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your constant presence and the message of love which you bring to all people. Help us to live our lives in accordance to that compassion and mercy which you embodied on the cross. AMEN.
