"The trumpeters and singers joined in unison,as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: 'He is good; his love endures forever.'" 2 Chronicles 5:13 (NIV 1984)
Instrumental Worship Ministry Purpose Statement
Our Instrumental Worship Ministry exists to glorify God through the musical support of our corporate worship by utilizing the unique giftedness of those He has called to serve in this ministry. Our purpose is also to develop these gifts by offering a graded approach, allowing for many engagement points into this ministry. Finally, it is also imperative that we discover, cultivate, and empower leaders who influence others along the Jesus Way.
Do you play french horn? How about viola? If so, we have a place for you. Our instrumental groups are for instrumentalists of all levels and abilities. Please contact Emily Klophaus for more information or just come along for one of our scheduled rehearsals.
We invite you to come and join our Sanctuary Orchestra. We have rehearsals on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00 in the Sanctuary (summer schedule varies). We always end with a combined run-through of Sunday morning's service along with our Media team and Sanctuary Choir. Contact Emily Klophaus for more information.
Are you gifted in worship leadership through guitar, bass, drums or keyboard? if so, we have a place for you in our band. We rotate band members into the weekly and monthly Sunday rotation. We use band in both the Awaken and Heritage services. We schedule all personnel and rehearsals through Planning Center Online, but our rehearsals are typically on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00. Because of the great commitment to this ministry, we do require an audition to be a part of this team and church membership is required. We need someone who is comfortable both reading music and reading chord charts.
If you have a heart and passion to help lead God’s people in worship through the gifts and talents He has given you, we’d love for you to be a part of the Band. If you are interested in auditioning, please contact Emily Klophaus by email or at (817) 276-6435.
Youth orchestra meets on Wednesday nights from 6:00-6:45 during the school year. During the summer, we rehearse with the Adult Orchestra from 6:30-8:00. Youth Gathering Band is also offered for all 9th-12 graders by audition, and by serving faithfully in our Youth Choir Program.
For more information, email Emily Klophaus or call the Music Office at 817. 276.6435.
We are always in need of instruments. If you would be willing to donate an instrument to the church orchestra, please contact Emily Klophaus. We will put it to good use!
