Instrumental Ministry

This diverse ministry is made up of instrumentalists from many ages, races, abilities, and backgrounds. They range in age from about 10 to 85, and originate from all over the world.

There are teachers, lawyers, students, homemakers, accountants, realtors, doctors, sales people, and even some professional musicians in our group. But what brings us together is our worship of Jesus Christ. It unifies us, encourages us in our diversity, and transforms us into a single unit that is able to accomplish what none of us could do individually!

  • Adult Orchestra

    (Interview required)

    The Adult Orchestra is a full orchestra (woodwinds, brass, strings, percussion, and rhythm section) whose main goal is to connect people to Jesus Christ through music. The orchestra leads our congregation in worship most Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 10:30 am. They rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm to 7:45pm in the orchestra room. In addition to morning worship services, they typically perform several times a year. Whether you are a professional musician, or haven’t played your instrument since high school, this is a great place to connect with other believers and to use your talents to connect people to Jesus Christ through music.
