Etowah UMC Music Ministry 

Hallelujah! Praise God in His holy house of worship, praise Him under the open skies; Praise Him for His acts of power, Praise Him for His magnificent greatness; Praise with a blast on the trumpet, Praise by strumming soft strings; Praise Him with castanets and dance, Praise Him with banjo and flute; Praise Him with cymbals and a big bass drum, Praise Him with fiddles and mandolin. Let every living, breathing creature praise God! Hallelujah!
– Psalm 150 The Message
