With its beginnings on Christmas Eve 2014, DELC’s POWER UP Youth Music Ensemble has become an activity where youth can lead worship on at least four Sundays throughout the year.  Whether children have musical talent or not, all are welcome to participate.  Janey Martinsen, our Power UP Music Director, leads this group.  Practices usually occur once per week in the week’s leading up to a service.  For more information, feel free to contact the church office.
