Praise Team

Our primary focus every Sunday morning is to create a worship experience that celebrates the truth that Jesus is alive. Because He is risen, we believe our worship should reflect that! We worship with joy because our lives have been changed by a God who loves us, and we’re declaring together that He is worthy of praise. We want to see people connected to Jesus and one another in a growing expression of authentic worship.

Our strategy is to utilize the arts to cultivate an engaging worship experience that glorifies God and inspires people. We love to be inventive and modern in our worship services while still holding onto the strong foundations that have been before our time. But on any given weekend, whatever happens on stage, our prayer is that you encounter God.

Get involved 

This ministry exists to lead the church body in worship. To most effectively lead the church, we place a high value on musical/technical excellence and the spiritual maturity of all team members. We seek talented and experienced musicians through an audition process. We have a rotation of team members, and most serve every other Sunday. month.  

We’re committed to creating a weekend experience that’s innovative and compelling.  One that connects people with God through a variety of creative avenues. A significant part of this depends on the amazing talents of our volunteers. If you’re interested in serving with your gifts, we’d love to talk with you!

“Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.”  Psalm 100:2
