Interested in joining the grace church worship arts team?
There are many opportunities for you to get involved in the worship arts ministry at Grace. We are always looking for new members of our adult choir, kids' choir, sound and media team, and worship team!
WE DEEPLY DESIRE OUR WORSHIP GATHERINGS TO BE:
If creation & history exist to glorify God, our gatherings should not aim for less than that. When we gather, we will sing songs that speak to the marvels that God has done for us rather than what we will do for Him. (Psalm 86:12; 1 Corinthians 10:31; 1 Chronicles 16:23-29)
God cares not only about who we worship, but how we worship him. We have to learn the right way to approach God in the midst of worship. Our services will be characterized as word infused, biblically saturated gatherings. (Colossians 3:16-17)
We have good news to remember and remind one another of every single Sunday. Our gatherings must be centered on that central thrust of scripture. (Hebrews 10:19-25; John 5:39)
If the word of God is trilingual - speaking to the good, the bad, and the hard - our corporate family gatherings should speak the same language. Sin is real, suffering is real, and grace is incredibly real. We will be quick to acknowledge this together. (Hebrews 10:22)
While Christ is at the center of why we gather, the corporate gathering is supposed to be just that - corporate. I am supposed to know that you are there and delight in that fact. When we gather together corporately to ascribe worth to God through song, we sing each other firm in the faith. (Ephesians 5.19; Colossians 3.16)
Worship is not a spectator event. It would be false to presume the worship team is performing simply because the musicians are on the stage. They are facilitating worship through song for the congregation. In other words, they are here to worship with you, not at you. (Psalm 95.1-2, 6)
Sunday morning is not simply an academic exercise, but it's delighting and thirsting after God. Affections guided by Biblical truth are essential to God-honoring worship. (John 4.23; Psalm 95.6)
For all of life
Since we are not punching the worship clock, it doesn't start when we gather and stop when we scatter. We want to live for the glory of God in all things. The rhythm of worship moves us from gathering to living a holy life. (Colossians 3.17; Psalm 96.2)
