Music is an integral part of worship in all cultures throughout time. Therefore, it is our objective that those involved in the NRC music ministries communicate the joy of worship and the power of God‘s word through the inspirational beauty of all styles of music to meet the diversified needs of our church community through piano and organ, choirs, bell and chime choirs, vocal and instrumental groups to serve as message communicators.
