Newsong Praise Choir is a multi-generational vocal group that loves to sing about our faith. We sing all styles of music from traditional to jazz and our songs are any songs, whether secular or Christian, that point to the Lord and toward actions that further His Kingdom on earth. This group believes that music should be delivered with passion and enthusiasm—not necessarily refined talent or skill. So if you are a great singer or just a singer that has a great heart, this is the group for you. Childcare provided during rehearsals. Contact Joy Ann Harmon, jharmon@messiahchurchmn.org, for more information.

Instrumental Music. Experienced instrumental musicians are sought for various purposes throughout the year. If you are an instrumental musician who feels called to share your gifts, please talk to Joy Ann Harmon.

Drama Team. Presenters enhance worship through the visual presence of drama, with the belief that some people are reached for Christ best through physical reenactment of Biblical themes. Those whose gifts include acting and who are comfortable in front of a camera, verbally adept in skits, monologues, video shoots, and voiceovers, are invited to serve with this team.
