Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament. Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness. Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp. Praise Him with the timbrel and dance. Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes. Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.” – Psalms 150
Our purpose is to facilitate the corporate worship experience, ministering to the needs of the heart, going to battle in the spirit realm before the preached word, effective in worship that is flowing from a strong personal intimacy with God – through our youth, special music & praise and worship.
What We Do
We cultivate the spirit, atmosphere and gift of worship, music & the arts through praise & worship, pre-sermonic selections, liturgical dance and youth worship. The Worship Team provides a wide array of worship and creative expressions, primarily through music to prepare the church body in spiritual battle for the Word of God to be preached. Members of the Worship Arts ministry are also developed in their gifting to utilize their creative gifts to their fullest potential for the glory of God. In addition to rehearsing regularly, facilitating the weekly worship services, we equip and train members to grow spiritually, as well as through vocal coaching, prayer, vocalizing techniques & in confidence/leadership building & development.
Think This is Where Your Called To Serve
Those considering joining the Worship Arts Ministry – Praise & Worship Team, Youth Praise Team, or Special Music, should first be prayerful in God’s leading. Your current gifts and skill sets should reflect those of exhortation, skilled musicianship, the ability to harmonize, comfortability standing in front of others and if led, ministering solos. Commitment to practice both in a group setting, along with individual practice to grow in your gifting. After you have completed New Member’s Class & your exit interview with Pastor Benson, you are welcome to join us at rehearsal to meet the ministry leader, team, and to determine your specific vocal range and voice part. Join us, for adult rehearsal at 9:30 AM, youth praise team rehearsal at 11:30 AM.
