Worship Ministry

The Worship Ministry’s vision is to glorify God and to make Him known through music and the arts. We have been created to worship our God through Christ Jesus, our Savior! Therefore, the mission of the ministry is to lead our congregation to worship our Creator God, teaching and equipping them in their daily worship from God’s heart, a Biblical perspective, and helping them understand it is a lifestyle, not just a Sunday morning experience!

Chorale | Wednesdays 6:45PM

Adults, Collegians, High School and Middle School Youth are invited to participate in the Chorale which is much more than a singing group. We are a community with the common bond of worshipping and praising our God through singing as well as loving, praying, caring for one another, and growing in the knowledge of God’s heart for our worship of Him! The Chorale sings and leads worship twice each month as well as special and seasonal events and outreaches. Childcare is available. If interested in being a part of this unique community group contact Ken Drake.

Worship-Media Teams

Again, these opportunities are open to Adults, Collegians, High School and Middle School Youth with a heart and desire to worship God in spirit and truth, with all their heart, soul, and strength. We are looking for talented singers, instrumentalists, and those interested in sound tech, media for services including power point and video for live streaming and recording. The worship-media team serves on a rotation schedule, rehearsing the week that they serve. The media team is called in at 8 am on the Sunday they serve. If interested, contact Ken Drake.
