Music Ministry Opportunities
Want to join the choir? The Choir rehearses Wednesdays from 7:15-8:45 pm (8:00-9:00 pm on Ministry Team Nights). The choir alternates singing at the 8:45 am service and the 11:15 am service. We welcome anyone who wants to use his or her voice and love of music to worship God. Men’s and Women’s Ensemble sing during worship on special occasions.
Choir Cantatas are open to people who are unable to make a weekly commitment to the choir. As cantata time approaches, we rehearse at the beginning of Wednesday choir rehearsals, and we schedule several Saturday rehearsals (for which childcare is provided) for those people who want extra practice or cannot come out on Wednesday nights. The cantatas feature about 40 singers, with accompaniment by the chamber ensemble. The chamber ensemble begins rehearsing about two months prior to the cantata and usually meets about once a week. Instruments include trumpet, French horn, trombone, clarinet, flute, drums, guitar, bass, piano, and synthesizer. Additional instruments are welcome!
The praise and worship team rehearses every Wednesday night from 5:45 to 6:30 pm. Singers are recruited from the choir and cantatas based upon the vocal part needed. The band includes guitars, bass, keyboards, and drums.
The audio team serves a crucial function by enabling the congregation to hear what’s being said, sung, or played. We have some people who are sound experts, and they provide technical support and expertise when there is a problem. But the most helpful quality for running the soundboard is being an attentive listener. New volunteers are always needed! Training sessions led by experienced technicians are conducted as needed.
