In all our music, our focus is to glorify God and enhance the worship experience through inspiring expression of praise. We serve through our music and in fellowship with one another. Together we learn, grow, serve, praise and share the message of God’s redeeming love. There is a place in the Hamblen Park Presbyterian music program for anyone who wishes to share in this ministry.

The Instrumental Ensemble is an intergenerational group of wind, string and percussion instruments. They provide special music on the Sunday before Christmas, Easter, and as well as on other special occasions. Two years of playing experience is required.
