On April 27, 2013, the Lagro United Methodist Church, on its 17th year in the ministry, has put up a small fund raising concert for the repair of the church's drum set.
The Praise and Worship leadership has put up a mini reunion concert with the title "Ceaseless Praise", which has featured the PAW groups that has led the LUMC Praise and Worship (PAW) ministry over the years.
Unfortunately, some of the pioneering members of the original praise band are out of the country and some are not available on the date so we could not gather completely the entire PAW groups.Perhaps, in the future, we can mount a bigger and grander reunion concert when every band member, former and present would be able to participate.

For the past seventeen years, the Lagro United Methodist Church Praise and Worship Team has been carrying its task of leading the congregation to a genuine worship experience and actively sharing in the church’s music ministry. They have been nurturing their God-given gifts, overcoming tests and challenges that have brought growth in each member’s spiritual life as each one rests on God’s grace, empowerment and leading.
It is our humble prayer that the Lord continue to guide and empower us as we pursue our goals in the ministry of holy music. To God be all the glory and honor!
