Worship Arts

Our Philosophy

Worshiping God is what we were created to do. Our lives are meant to be as an angled mirror, reflecting God’s image, glory, and purposes upon the world around us and back to Himself. In all that we do, we pray that it would be to His glory alone.

Worship happens when we gather on Sundays, or meet in small groups in peoples’ living rooms, when we pray silently or meditate on God’s Word, when we love and serve one another, when we marvel at the breath-taking beauty of God’s creation, or when we express our own creativity through the arts.

When we gather on Sundays, we worship through prayer and through song, we worship through learning from God’s Word, we worship by coming to God’s table in communion, and we worship as we fellowship with one another.

Worship Arts Ministry

The Worship Arts Ministry is composed of four main components:

Sound Team:

The sound team is responsible for monitoring and mixing audio during our gatherings, as well as setting up and storing gear.

Presentation Team:

The presentation team is in charge of the visual presentation of graphics, videos, lyrics, and scripture readings via the projection system. The team may also be utilized for overall thematic decoration of the sanctuary as well.

… Musical Style

We typically do not cater to any particular musical style in worship (as in traditional or contemporary) – this is not what worship is about. Rather, our goal is to join with the ongoing praises that transcend heaven and earth as well as time and space – proclaiming God’s worth. We choose music based on its content, as well as its ability to flow and fit in with the overall journey of the worship gathering. So, what you hear may at times sound “contemporary,” or it may seem a bit more “traditional.” For us, the style is not the point. Whatever music we use in worship, whether old or new, we apply our own creativity as much as we can, so that the result is truly an outpouring that uniquely reflects the praises of our hearts as much as possible. With that said, the style and atmosphere do vary according to our two worship gatherings.
