“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24 (ESV)
Worship is not simply an event for us, it is the state of one’s heart and the collective gathering of hearts to honor God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus is central in our worship experiences because of His sacrificial death for our sin, He is the living testimony of our hope for eternal life, and He is present in every moment of our lives. The Holy Spirit is the indwelling power of God in our lives. As such, we seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our preparation for worship and expect the moving of the Holy Spirit both corporately and individually as we worship. Worship services are both a celebration for what God has done and a preparation for what God will lead us to do as His ambassadors in this world.
The choir of adults and older teenagers provides support for congregational singing and shares feature selections in worship as a part of the greater proclamation ministry of the church. In addition to weekly worship service responsibilities, the Worship Choir prepares a Christmas worship celebration and supports added worship events of the church as needed. Weekly rehearsals are at 7:15 PM in the Choir Room (located on the 2nd floor of the Sanctuary Building). Those interested in participating should contact the Worship Pastor.
Our vocal and instrumental ensemble has a primary task of supporting congregational singing during worship services. Vocalists are selected from participants in the Worship Choir. Instrumentalists are added by audition and/or invitation. Rehearsals are weekly on Sunday mornings at 7:30-8:45 PM.
We have music and worship training and leadership opportunities for younger children (4 years - 2nd grade) and older children’s choirs (3rd - 6th grade). Our primary goal is to help children on their journey to become lifelong worshipers. Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 5:30-6:10 PM.
The technology supporting our worship services and other events is provided by sound reinforcement, lighting, and video technology operators. Interested persons should contact the ministerial staff to discuss volunteering for training and service opportunities.
