The Worship Team is dedicated to ministering to God and leading
the congregation in enthusiastically lifting their voices in the
meaningful singing and speaking of praises about God and to God until
they sense being led by the Holy Spirit, to draw nearer to the Presence
of God and communing with Him, in worship, love for who He is and for
the things He has done for all of us, with their whole hearts and minds
focused upon Jesus Christ.
1 Chronicles 16:29
ascribe to the
LORD the glory due his name. Bring an offering and come before him;
worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.
the model provided in 1 Chronicles 16:1-36 and the Psalms (as well as
the Bible in general) through prayer and waiting on the Lord, and
consultation with the Elders and Congregation. One way the goal of this
ministry is effectively achieved is through worship which; Exhorts the
people, Begins the meeting with thanksgiving, Moves on into praise, and
Flows on into worship (heartfelt adoration of our Lord).
Our Worship Team is sensitive to the congregation and to the Holy
Spirit in reference to His timing for the movement of the people into
true, spiritual, and deep worship of God for who He is. Pauses in
appropriate places (i.e. after a song selection, prayer or scriptural
reading, etc.) as well as musical interludes with the instruments only,
will permit time for God to minister to and speak to the needs of His
people through the spiritual gifts in the church which the Holy Spirit
desires to employ.
