The primary ministry of the Sanctuary Orchestra is to glorify God by reaching up to Him through worship, reaching out to the lost and hurting with the healing message of Christ, and reaching in to our orchestra family with love.
The Sanctuary Orchestra leads in worship by providing special music and supports the Sanctuary Choir every Sunday during worship.
The orchestra also performs additional
ministries during the year including:
