Our New Fall Contest!

child musician Calling all musicians … do you have a knack for plunking out your own catchy tune on the piano, plucking some original sounds on the strings or working the music on any other instrument?  We’re looking for a new music bed for musiciansour weekly video teaser.  The music must be original, should be 45- 60 seconds in length and recorded in a professional or semi professional studio.  Tip - Most high schools have great studios these days.  Remember this is a backtrack so a voice must be heard over top of it.  Have fun with it, all styles are welcome from Rock to New Age  to Jazz. Send me your samples in MP3 format to

veazey-steve President Veazey expressed his gratitude for the core of members who are giving generously and addressed the need to broaden the base of contributors of all ages so we can say “yes” to Missional opportunities. He challenged us to join his family in this effort: “As for me and my family, we are going to increase our giving to all aspects of the church’s mission. I am also going to recruit and mentor others as World Ministries Mission Tithes contributors. I invite each of you to do the same.” (See full statement at
Are you responding to God’s generosity by giving to your full capacity to both World and Local Ministries? Our shared mission depends on a sustained increase in tithing. Thank you to all who support the ministries we are called to share with the world.
