Rev. Dona Smith-Powers
Dona believes that:

Music in the church is not just entertainment. It is a means to connect people with one another in community and with their Creator. Therefore, the instruments should never overpower the people, but should be part of the team. Hymns need to be carefully chosen and “singable.” The words of hymns need to reflect the theology of the the gathered community.

    I love it. When you open the website, WHOSOEVER blasts you in the face with the rainbow of colors. That’s just huge. The rest of the content only serves to reinforce the image, message and culture of NCoF. Nicely done.
