“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 theJesus Way.
Do you play violin? How about saxophone? If so, we have a place for you. If you are a woodwind player or strings player, we especially need 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.
Youth orchestra meets on specified Sunday afternoons from 5:00-6:30. We rehearse with the Adult Orchestra for this brief time. 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!
We invite you to come and join our Sanctuary Orchestra. We have rehearsals on Wednesday nights from 7:00-9:00 in the Sanctuary. We always end with a combined run-through of Sunday morning’s service along with our Media team and Sanctuary Choir, and then divide up for group rehearsals. Contact Emily Klophaus for more information.
–By Audition Only–
Whether you are an old 80’s hair-band rocker, an up and coming independent garage band member or just have gotten really good at the RockBand video game, we have a place for you in the worship ministry. We rotate guitarists, bassists and drummers into the weekly and monthly Sunday rotation. We typically rehearse on Thursday night, unless the schedule is different on PlanningCenterOnline. 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 Rhythm Section. If you are interested in auditioning, please contact Emily Klophaus by email or at (817) 276-6462.
Do you enjoy ringing handbells? If so, we’d love for you to join this ministry. Whether you are an experienced ringer, or have just dabbled, we have a place for you. Our groups meet on Sunday afternoons. For more information, contact Debbie Bertrand or the Music Office at 817.276.6435.
