“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is true worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will. For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgement, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.” Romans 12:1-3
Here at Grace Church, our goal as a ministry is to lead genuine, authentic worship as well as model lives of fervent spirituality. We believe worship is humanity’s true response to an encounter with God – an expression of our love relationship with Him. The purpose of worship is to unify a diverse people and create the body of believers God has called us to be. We aim to be a team that lives out what we sing.
Why do we sing?
Music is part of our faith history. Whether it is through painful expression or exhortation of praise, we come from a long line of people who have expressed their faith through song. The power of music cannot be ignored. Humanity is moved by music in ways beyond explanation. It allows us to move deeper – to a place where words alone cannot take us.
Though music and the arts are powerful expressions of our worship, we recognize that it is certainly not limited to these. We believe worship is the act of completely offering up our lives in adoration and service to God and God alone. Christ is our worship leader – our model. Are we willing to faithfully represent Christ in our worship? Our goal is not simply to encourage and challenge each other in our worship on Sundays. Rather, we strongly believe our worship needs to define who we are in our lives between Sundays so that we may faithfully represent Christ to those outside the walls of the church.
Practice: Wednesdays from 6:00 – 7:15 PM
Our worship choir at Grace helps lead worship each Sunday during our Sunday morning worship services. This group is made up of people from all walks of life and varying degrees of talent and experience. However, one thing each member shares is a genuine desire to use the gifts God has given them to worship Him through song. If you are interested in participating, please contact Pastor Elissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Praise Team / Praise Band
Practice: Wednesday from 7:15 – 8:00 PM
Our praise teams and praise band here at Grace also play an integral role in leading us into authentic times of worship where we truly encounter the presence of God. Whether we sing the hymns or the popular praise choruses of today, we believe all worship is for God and God alone. If you feel God is calling you to help lead His people in worship through the talents He has given you, please contact Pastor Elissa email@example.com for more information on how to get involved.
Tech / Media
We are always looking for people who understand and have a passion for technology to be involved in our services. If you are interested in creating media programs, running lighting, or helping run sound, please contact Pastor Elissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
