A Pike County church uses music to bring the local community together.

The Good Shepherd Church in Milford held a sacred drum circle Wednesday night.

The event gives members of the community an uplifting musical experience and teaches them how Native Americans came together as one.

"There's something inside of you that breathes you, that beats your heart...to me that's your internal drummer and the Great Spirit loved drums so much that He gave us all heartbeats so I try in these events to bring people closer to that 'He' that is in them...that beater of their heart," said Christopher Gebiya, the artist/musician who leads the circles.

The Good Shepherd Church holds drum circles on a monthly basis.

All are welcome and no musical experience is required to participate.
