We are a ministry of our home church, Sandy Creek Baptist of Amelia, Virginia. “We believe according to the scripture that we are called to worship… giving God His due. We are called to evangelism … bringing more people to God’s faith family. We are called to service… as Jesus came to serve. We are called to discipleship… becoming more like Christ. We are called to fellowship… not just believing, but belonging.” It is our desire to spread God's love and truth through song. O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Psalm 95:1

Our group started from a desire to play old time and gospel music. In the beginning, there were several church members who gathered together at one another’s home to play, sing, and fellowship. The word got out and the response was so overwhelming, we soon found ourselves at the local Company Five Volunteer Fire Station. It was great fun. Some nights there would be 15 to 20 musicians; beginners to very experienced, along with 20 to 60 just listening and singing. After a while, a group of us started concentrating more on refining our talents. We started playing at local area churches and other social events. In 2006, we became a ministry of Sandy Creek Baptist Church. What an honor it is. We have a desire to keep the tradition of old time gospel music alive. Before there cars, televisions and cell phones; friends, neighbors and families would gather together on the front porch and play old time music and gospel. What a better world it would be today if that still continued!

Faith and obedience in Christ has put instruments in our hands and now we are instruments for the Lord. We will continue to be obedient to our Lord. As with all Christians, we must not place limits on ourselves and allow the Lord to use us as He sees fit.
