Worship Arts Ministry Teams
We consider every sub-team mentioned here to be a part of the overall "Worship Team". This ministry is a classic case where all the parts make up the whole, and we can't function without all parts working together. Below are some descriptions of our teams. As you read through them, please consider how you might be able to contribute in any of these areas.
Our musicians make up two worship bands that rotate every other week to provide music for Sunday morning services and other special events and services. Bands consist of drums, percussion, bass, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, piano and synth. Required commitment includes a mid-week evening rehearsal and Sundays from 7:45am to 12:15pm on each week they serve, as well as periodic team meetings and retreats. Soloists and ensembles also contribute for special services and events (e.g. string ensembles, solo instrumentals, etc)
Vocalists serve either as worship leaders or in the praise choir. Worship leaders serve along with the worship bands and rotate every other week to sing in the Sunday morning services. Required commitment includes a mid-week evening rehearsal and Sundays from 7:45am to 12:15pm on each week they serve, as well as periodic team meetings and retreats. The praise choir joins the worship band and leaders occasionally to enhance the worship services.
Sound and Lighting Team
Our sound and lighting technicians handle various aspects of the sound system and light operation for services and other events. Sound and light techs have skill in operating sound systems using various control consoles and components, and also have an ear for proper balance and “mix” for the music performed by the worship band and other musicians. Some training is available. Required commitment includes a mid-week evening rehearsal and Sundays from 7:45am to 12:15pm on each week they serve, in addition to occasional special events, occasional set-up/tear-down, training meetings, and periodic team meetings and retreats.
Our computer graphics (CG)operators ensure that the computer graphics (texts, images, video, lyrics, etc) that support the singing, messages and announcements,are synchronized with the flow of the services. Great attention to detail is required in order to eliminate distracting mis-ques, and helping to ensure that texts are accurate and in the proper order. Training is available. Required commitment is 7:45am to 12:15pm on each Sunday they serve, as well as periodic team meetings, retreats and training.
