Surrounded by the celebrity status and desperation that makes tinseltown infamous, MSC gathers an anomaly of people declaring unapologetic love for their Creator. Led by MSC, these declarations are passionate and hopeful, intense and accessible. Free of clichés and religious jargon, the language of humanity’s sacred songs floats on the wings of freedom offering peace and purpose where notoriety and fortune’s promises fall short. This eclectic and vibrant church community has banded together in a variety of colors and backgrounds, with no shortage of ambition, questions and dreams. They seek to navigate the current culture while intersecting their faith and the creativity that brought them to this city in the first place. Out of their kaleidoscope of stories rises a collection of songs that connect the created to their Maker.
