The Hillsdale Music Ministry strives to glorify God with vocal and instrumental music as we praise Him in our worship services. We try to keep a balance of using music that is new and exciting, as well as our many favorites from the past. It is our goal to be obedient to the instruction in Ephesians which tells us to sing "Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs." If there is such a thing as a "spiritual song" there must certainly also be a carnal or worldly song. With that in mind, it is our goal to use music that is conservative in style but fresh and exciting in presentation as we strive to honor Christ in all that we do. The primary use of the Hillsdale music ministry centers around congregational worship, but in addition to corporate singing as a church family there are a variety of other opportunities for individuals of all ages to serve with musical abilities. Some of these include children's choirs, adult choir, orchestra, instrumental offertories, small groups, solos, and ensembles. If you are a musician, we would love to add you to our team of faithful servants!
