New Thought Messengers

The New Thought Messengers, the NTCSL house band, is comprised of professional musicians who are dedicated to the mission of the church.  The band plays in a variety of musical styles including: rock, pop, jazz, swing, country, hip hop, and whatever else is required with very little advance preparation.  With rare exceptions, the band plays for all Sunday morning services.

Instrumentalists who have an interest in playing at NTCSL should contact the music director directly at: music@newthoughtcsl.org.
