Music

The Music Ministry of LOUMC is diverse and exciting! A rich tradition of quality music, both vocal and instrumental, for children through adults, seeks to honor God through music. Through traditional, blended, and praise music, we worship with bells, children’s and youth choirs, Chancel Choir, orchestra, praise bands, and musical productions.
