Maranatha Music and Sacred Arts Ministry continually sets the atmosphere of praise and worship on a weekly basis. Going back to its inception, MSAM, formerly the Maranatha Music Department, has formed the style of worship at the Maranatha SDA Church. Featuring a wide genre of music, MSAM fits the worship needs of all its members. From its soulful traditional gospel music to its contemporary sounds, praise can be heard when the doors of Maranatha are open. Music is infused throughout our worship experience, from the introit to the appeal as our members join in concert with our choirs and musicians to offer up sounds of gratitude and adoration to Jehovah. MSAM features many different choirs.

The Chapelaires is the longest running choir of Maranatha. The Chapelaires continue to bless our souls on the first Sabbath of each month with its traditional gospel sound and has been the bedrock choir of Maranatha dating back to the late 1970's. The Chapelaires are presently under the direction of Lolo Harris. 

Worship, starting out as Maranatha's first youth choir, showcases a contemporary musical genre dating back as far as the early 1980's. Worship has since grown to be an adult choir and is presently under the direction of Francina Thomas.

Genesis is Maranatha's children's choir and has morphed from the Blue Bells in the 1980's, to His Own in the 1990's, and to Genesis in the early 2000's to present. For several years Genesis wrote and produced its own original music. Genesis is presently under the direction of LoLo Harris and is accompanied by Cass Johnson.

The Combined Choir is a combination of all members of other choirs and ministers with genre selections from the different choirs. The directorship of the Mass Choir is shared by Lolo Harris, Francina Thomas, and Cass Johnson.

On Occasion is a fairly new choir under the directorship of Tony Thompson, which is comprised of many of the original members of Worship and features contemporary sounds.

The Women's Choir (seasonal) serves for our annual Women's Day programs.
Men's Choir (seasonal) serves for our annual Men's Day programs.
The Maranatha Band is at the core of all our worship services and supports the ministry of all the choirs as well as praise teams and is under the musical directorship of Jonathon Curry. 

Maranatha has also been truly blessed to have two very powerful Praise Teams which ministers during a dedicated praise and worship segment on alternating Sabbaths as well as a youth praise team (TrueBlend) which ministers on Youth Sabbaths.

While music is at the heart of MSAM, we have incorporated other forms of praise and worship. These include dance and drama showcasing the Maranatha Sacred Dance Angels as well as Dramaddicts which ministers several times throughout the year.

We are inviting all those with the Holy Ghost gift of musical talents to join us and be a part of this great ministry.
