This team of hard-working volunteers makes the worship experience possible by lending their musical talents on the weekends. They prepare their music at home, show up to practice on Wednesday nights, and arrive at the Worship Center ahead of everyone else for the final sound mixing and run-through.
For this service, we use piano and a keyboard with its setting on an organ sound. No other rhythm musicians are used for this service. We also use our full orchestra, meaning, all string instruments (violin, viola, cello) and wind instruments (trumpet, trombone, flute, clarinet, ect). Currently, we only rehearse this music Sunday morning beginning at 7:45 am in the Sanctuary. There is the expectation that everyone comes prepared and ready to go by accessing the music through planningcenter, which is our online service where we store our music, schedule musicians, and send out communications. If interested in participating in this group, please contact the Worship office.
For this service, we use full rhythm section, and full orchestra. Rehearsals for this group are every Wed night from 7:30-8:00pm, and then a touch-up rehearsal on Sunday mornings at 7:55am. Same expectations as mentioned for Traditional Instrumentalists apply to our Blended musicians, but the difference is there is a mid-week rehearsal for the Blended group. In addition to the two keyboardists (one on piano, the other a keyboard), this is an outstanding opportunity for those who are wind or string musicians wanting to perform challenging arrangements. You will also be responsible for backing up the Choir on their specials as well. If interested in participating in this group, please contact the Worship office.
For this service, we use only rhythm instrumentalists. Rehearsals for this group are every Wed night from 8:00 to 9:30pm. We have a touch-up rehearsal Sunday morning in Room 144 at 8:45am (right after the Traditional Worship is done.) This group has the most demanding requirements of all the groups, as they present 5 songs every week, and plans are being made to add a 6th song as a pre-service opener. If you’re a well-developed rhythm musician, committed to excellence, and want to rub shoulders with like-minded musicians, then please contact the Worship Office about your interest.
