Music is an evangelistic tool. Music in the church should lift up the name of Jesus and present the gospel message in a clear and concise way. Music that presents Christ as alive, promotes an atmosphere of celebration!
Music is a worship experience. Appropriate music can not only prepare people for worship, but it can be a worship experience in itself. Good church music will focus attention on our living God.
Music is a tool for discipleship. Scripture, theology, and Christian principles can be taught through sacred music. This is why the message in song is so important.
Music prepares the heart of the worshipper and the worship leaders.
Music is a ministry. Gospel music in the church should be used to present “the unsearchable riches of Jesus Christ.”
Ways that you can be involved in leading worship
• Worship Choir – Our worship choir is a group of ordinary people who enjoy singing praises to God! This group is dedicated to serving an active role each week in our worship services preparing the hearts of the worshipers for the Word of God. The Worship Choir provides a unique opportunity for those desiring to serve the Lord in a musical capacity and experience the fellowship of a wonderful loving family of believers!
The worship choir meets on Sunday nights at 5pm. Practice will last approximately one hour to an hour and a half.
• The Instrumentalists – This is our adult instrumental group. It is made up of musicians from our church body. These instrumentalists are using their talents for the Lord Jesus Christ by faithfully playing in our Sunday worship services each week.
The instrumentalists practice each Wednesday night after the evening Bible study at approximately 7:30-8:00.
• The Praise Team – is an invitation/audition group of singers who assist in leading the congregation in worship during our Sunday services. There are two different teams of singers for each morning service.
The praise team practices on Wednesday evenings beginning at 7:00-8:00.
• Special Music – This is also an invitation/audition group of singers. They will provide special music (solo, duet, instrumental, interpretive movement, etc.) during both of our morning services. A schedule is provided for this each quarter so that they can be prepared to lead in the worship service.
