Music Ministry at Fairlington

Let us praise Christ through music!

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Sing unto the Lord with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm. With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King.

~~Psalms 98: 4-6


All are welcome!
