Music & Worship Arts

The Ministry of Music and Worship Arts plans and produces purposeful and spiritual Christian worship experiences at our three Sunday morning worship services and at additional special services, concerts and other programs throughout the year. Through our mostly volunteer efforts we find ways to praise God through the lively arts.

On a regular basis numerous volunteers give of their time and talents in specialty areas which include the performing arts, fine arts, hospitality, technology, public speaking and more. We are always ready to welcome new members to our ensembles or to any of the volunteer groups that make our services special. You are invited to be in touch with any of the contact persons listed if you have questions or wish to be a part of our Ministry of Music and Worship Arts.

Technology & Visual Arts, Hospitality and
In-Worship Volunteers

Technology

All of our worship services depend heavily on the work of our volunteer Tech Crew Members. Each service is scripted in MediaShout and presented cue-by-cue using computers and audio equipment. We are always happy to hear from folks who have an interest in these areas. Contact John Kirn to learn about training and available time slots.

Visual Arts

The creation of altar paraments, banners and other worship space decoration is an on-going project. Marty Hines heads up this area for our traditional services and Larissa Estes leads the visuals volunteers for the ARISE! service.

Hospitality

Each week a committed and dedicated group of people, women and men, old and young perform tasks that make our services and our worship spaces inviting and hospitable.
