First, we have a thriving traditional Sunday service at 8:30am with a deeply talented choir that presents classic vocal anthems showcasing the purest instrument of praise, the human voice! Choral anthems in 4-part harmony fill the sanctuary with glorious sound that will inspire and energize accompanied by piano and full organ. Punctuating the traditional worship experience are instrumental preludes, reverent offertories and timeless classic hymns sung by the whole congregation as they have been for years and shall be for years to come. We know traditional churches are closing at an alarming rate but we’re honored to keep this classic style of worship alive and well!!
At our 11am Sunday service we embrace a more contemporary worship style. Though the order of service is still fairly traditional the Praise Team has electric and acoustic guitars, bass, piano and drums accompanying a group of over a dozen deeply talented vocalists. The band is highly accomplished with seasoned pros that can craft huge powerful sounds of triumph and glory or delicate, intimate whispers to stir the soul. Covering a huge repertoire of songs, many with our own arrangements, from Hillsong, David Crowder, Elevation Worship, Zac Williams and so many more; Praise Team worships with you yet focuses on Him. At all services our accomplished Sound Team keeps the sound just right and our Visual Team presents the flow of service and lyrics on elevated screens so you can worship as calmly or actively as you prefer. If you’re looking for contemporary praise music presented with the respect it deserves in a classic sanctuary with light streaming in through our massive stained glass windows that bask our services in His wondrous glow, then come on!!
Also, we have a thriving Youth Praise Team with over 20 voices at our last Youth Sunday service! The Praise band backs them up so we can really get a full sound for them to Rock Out! Our youth program is so alive and on fire for God that they’re really guiding the church with their unashamed worship at the 11am Sunday service and youth group on Sunday afternoon and Wednesday nights!! We’ve been able to cover some more cutting-edge artists like Skillet and some hip-hop like KB as they lead the way to our future. Talk to our Youth minister, Maddi Smith or any of the kids that come out all the time if you’d like to get involved!!
If you play an instrument or sing and would like to apply your spiritual gift by joining one of our choirs, I’d love to hear from you!! The traditional choir rehearses on Wednesday nights from 730-9, Praise Team on Monday night’s from 630-830 and Youth Praise Team on Sunday nights from 6-7. If you feel like you can serve on the Sound Team or Visual Team we can always use help with those areas as well. The last and strongest piece of our music ministry we need to bring a deep and meaningful worship experience is… YOU! Come and be with our kind and engaging congregation and let His words in Colossians 3:16 guide us:
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God”
Looking forward to praising with you!
