Music

The goal of the Music Ministry is to lead and support the singing in the liturgy to give praise and  thanksgiving to God. We share our musical talents, as gifts from God, to add emotion to the liturgy, to encourage the congregation to sing, and to strengthen our faith. Please contact our Music Director, Kristen Beeves, at 913-766-9755 or beeves.kristen@stagneskc.org if you are interested in joining the Music Ministry.
