praiseartsA Ministry for ALL sacred souls that provides dignity, compassion, inclusion for the greater good, and an encounter with God through praise, worship, dance, spoken word, mime and any means that God sees fit to use us. We are but the vessels of praise.  Our mission as the PRAISE ARTS ministry is to lead others into all-out, uncompromised worship of God. Our primary purpose is to give God the glory, honor and praise that He deserves. We are a people learning to lead others into worship of God by living a life of faith, i.e. in calling, competence and character as we worship the Lord in humility, intimacy and passion.  We are a people learning… We are a GROUP of people who work toward improving our effectiveness at leading worship and as disciples of the Lord Jesus. We desire to reflect the likeness of Jesus by multiplying, growing and maturing through the disciplines of personal worship, prayer, study, fellowship and transparency.

mimeWe desire worship experiences that bring others into the very presence of the Lord, thereby allowing a profound opportunity for the Holy Spirit to touch souls, heal hearts, break the chains of bondage and ignite a passion for Jesus and the work of His Kingdom. ‘Others’ includes not only our body of believers at the SSCC, but we are also looking outward with a heart to gather those ‘unconvinced’ around us (neighbors, friends, work associates, etc.) to point them to the life-giving knowledge and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ that we enjoy.

Psalms 30:11

Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
