Psalm 108:1 My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing and make music with all my soul. (NIV)
Music is Powerful! Music has enormous power to engage the emotions, and the Bible resounds with praise and thanks to God through music. In the Old Testament music played a number of different roles, including assisting in the memorization of God’s truth and in reminding God’s people of their fallenness and salvation. In the New Testament God’s people gather together to express their praise to him and to build one another up in the faith. A rich variety of music that is in harmony with the ministry of God’s word is a significant part of the life of the church and points towards the role of music in our praise of God in heaven.
Pinecroft Baptist has made a "Music Page" for you to enjoy Christian music right here anytime you want. This is VERY important for ALL of us to grow as Christians. We will continue to change out the music here to give you a variety to listen to. We will have an "Artist Showcase" to highlight a different artist. Keep checking this page each week for the new music! ENJOY!
Our purpose is to share the message of the New Covenant. We began singing in a small, country church in central Pa. In the fall of 2012 we felt God leading us to move to Ohio. In January of 2013 we became a part of Oasis Tabernacle in Sugarcreek, Ohio. It is our desire to glorify the name of Jesus.
Dale Schmucker has been singing and writing songs for 23 years. God has put a burden on his heart to spread the gospel both in word and song. He sings and plays acoustic guitar and harmonica.
His wife, Karyn, sings with him and has written a few songs.
Krista Stoltzfus was with us for about 10 years. We greatly appreciate her creativity on the piano, the songs she’s written, and her spirit of sacrifice.
Several other friends have helped with music, both in recording our albums and when going into prisons, churches, and conferences. For the inspiration, creativity, and talent they have shared with Hopesong, our thanks go to Micah Detweiler, Phil Shirk, Nathan Detweiler, Susan Krombholz, Matthew Weaver, Rosetta Weaver, and Monica Weaver.
