Worship Arts Ministries

WORSHIP ARTS MINISTRIES

“Worship is more than ‘worship time.’  It’s more than the best song sets.  It’s everything we do, say, feel, hear, give, touch and see in God’s presence, the entire time we are together, and it’s about what we take with us out into the world beyond the walls…  If we access God through all our bodies then worship is not just about singing. It’s about everything.”

Sally Morgenthaler, (taken from her column, “Culture Watch,” March/April 2005 edition, Worship Leader Magazine)

Worship Arts Ministry Vision Statement

“To create a worship environment where one can freely fellowship with Jesus Christ and those present, through the Word, prayer, and the arts.”

We desire to promote corporate worship through:

  • Preaching
  • Music
  • Silence
  • Celebration
  • Public Reading of Scripture
  • Prayer
  • Drama
  • Visual Arts
  • Communion and Baptism

WORSHIP TEAMS & PRAISE BANDS

Music in our blended worship service is typically led by a team of singers and instrumentalists.  Ensembles vary from week to week.  Band rehearsals are held Tuesday nights from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM.  Other rehearsals are scheduled as needed.

Each worship team meets on Sunday morning at least one hour before the service begins for a sound check and a complete run through of the music for the morning.

ADULT CHOIR

This ministry meets Thursday nights at 7:30 PM during the fall and winter months to prepare music for seasonal worship events and Sunday services.  Rehearsals are held in the sanctuary.

All are welcome to participate; no audition necessary!

INSTRUMENTALISTS

There are opportunities for instrumentalists to use their gifts in our blended worship services.  Children, teens and adults are invited to help lead worship as they play their instruments for our Lord.

VOCAL SOLOISTS

Gifted singers from within our church family are invited to prepare solos for use during worship services.

DRAMA

Sketches have been used occasionally in our services to help illustrate the day’s theme, an entire sermon series, or to bring a book of the Bible to life.  Plays and pageants have been used for evening outreach events as well as seasonal worship services.

USHERS & GREETERS

These individuals provide a warm welcome to everyone who walks through our doors to attend worship services, and are ready to answer any questions from our guests.

TECHNICAL MINISTRIES

Volunteers serve in all our technical ministries, including sound, computer, video production, lighting, etc.

VISUAL ARTS & DESIGN

This team creates sets on the sanctuary platform that complement the senior pastor’s sermon series and also highlight the important seasons of the church year.

WORSHIP ARTS MINISTRIES FOR CHILDREN

Children in grades 2 – 6 are invited to participate in the worship life of our congregation by using the artistic gifts God has given them (in music, drama, and the visual arts). Every other year, a larger children’s theater project is taken on, such as:

  • The Horse and His Boy – 2012 (by C. S. Lewis)
  • Adventures in Odyssey – 2010
  • The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe – 2008 (by C. S. Lewis)
