Worship Arts

We desire for our worship to please and bless our mysterious and relational God.
We believe that there are two contexts for worship – the corporate worship ritual that we take part in on Sundays, and the acts of private worship which are practiced through prayer and service to those in need. Inside of the corporate ritual, we know it to be true that all believers have a role in the worship service – whether it’s serving communion, setting up a holy place to worship, or creating visual aids for the service.

Sunday services are, by design, a ritual that we participate in together. We know it to be true that we have been created in God’s image and yet we live in the tension of our fallen humanity; therefore we need the consistency of traditions and the opportunity for deliberate creative worship acts. Our corporate worship ritual consists of these traditions:

  • A corporate invocation – coming together and calling on the presence of God. This may take form through song, spoken word, or liturgy.
  • The Proclamation of the Word – teaching that is biblically based and relevant for spreading the gospel message.
  • Thanksgiving at the Table – story telling from the body of believers about what God is doing in and around them and sharing in communion together.
  • Benediction – a benediction is a blessing or prayer over the people.

Here are some areas to get connected:

  • Sing or play an instrument on the worship team
  • Vibe Team – Help create an aesthetically-pleasing environment in the sanctuary
  • AV/Sound – Assist in running slides and sound during Celebration Services
  • Graphics – Help prepare slides for Celebration Services
  • Videography – Help create and edit videos to be used during Celebration Services
